Fastweb (Financial Aid Scholarship Search Through The Web)
http://www.studentservices.com/fastweb/

A CONTENT:
For students, this is an excellent source for finding scholarship resources (only snail mail addresses are given).

B AESTHETICS:
The site has some nice graphics, but mostly they are sponsor banners.

B ORGANIZATION:
The site is organized well, but it is a long (but worthwhile) process to get to the end result.

B REVIEW:
The main thrust of this site is to provide names and addresses of relevant scholarships for students entering any level of college. The student goes through a fairly long process of filling out forms which list their name, address, GPA, hobbies, major, colleges of interest... and much more. There are 5 or 6 "Steps" or Online Pages to fill out. At the end, a mailbox is generated for the student which lists all the scholarships available given the information submitted. I received 9 results when entering very standard information. They also provide a sample form letter for inquiries about the scholarships. This is a very useful site, so hang in there when filling out the forms!
