Nation's Largest Scholarship Organization Partners With Largest Scholarship Search Company

MINNEAPOLIS, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Scholarship America announced today that it has partnered with scholarship search giant Fastweb, the leading website for scholarship and financial aid information owned by Monster Worldwide, Inc., parent company of Monster.com (NYSE: MWW), to bring more funding opportunities to students registered with the organization.

To register with Scholarship America, students complete a free online profile that includes information about their academic standing, extracurricular activities, volunteer and paid work, and family financial information. The students are then matched with scholarship opportunities for which they may be eligible, based on the information provided. Until now, those opportunities were limited to scholarships awarded through Scholarship America programs.

"This new partnership with Fastweb changes all that," said Scholarship America president and CEO, Lauren A. Segal. "Now students who register with Scholarship America will be matched to our opportunities as well as every eligible opportunity through Fastweb's database. We're thrilled to have a 'one-stop shop' for students to use for their scholarship search and application."

Students will be required to opt-in to be matched with opportunities via Fastweb's search tool, which lists roughly 1.5 million scholarships.

"We are thrilled to partner with Scholarship America and marry their existing opportunities with our unmatched scholarship matching capabilities," said Fastweb Director, Mark Nelson. "We look forward to a long partnership with a truly outstanding organization."

Students can register with Scholarship America via the organization's website, scholarshipamerica.org, and through its local Dollars for Scholars affiliates. Registered students will begin to benefit from the partnership immediately.
