About Us

FastWeb, the Internet’s leading scholarship search service, helps students make the decisions that shape their lives: choosing a college, paying for college, and finding jobs and internships.

And it’s all free.

Recommended by more than 16,000 high schools and 3,600 colleges, FastWeb is the most trusted online college resource. Last year, one out of three college-bound high school seniors used the site, and more than 34 million students have created FastWeb accounts since launching in 1995.

Each FastWeb user answers a detailed questionnaire about themselves. The site then uses this data to generate a personalized suite of information of scholarships, colleges, internships, jobs, and more. At the heart is FastWeb’s industry-leading scholarship database — the most comprehensive and accurate compilation of national, community, and college-specific scholarships available anywhere. Updated continuously by the company’s own dedicated research team, FastWeb’s database contains over 1.3 million scholarships worth over $3 billion.

FastWeb’s enhanced college search is the only place where one can research and compare colleges based on the relevant scholarship matches at each school. The jobs & internships service lists part-time job opportunities close to home, along with career-launching internships around the country. Online tools help students stay organized with a dynamic calendar, email reminders, favorites lists, and personalized content to help them succeed.

Through our web site and business, FastWeb supports a national community of students, parents, educators, and scholarship providers — with a commitment to helping students realize their dreams of higher education.
