Cappex has done all the work for students by creating a free online directory of more than 3,000 colleges and universities. They’ve highlighted each school for their distinct features, but it doesn’t end there. Cappex’s scholarship list features more than $10 million worth of annual awards. They listened and understood the woes of high school and college students and addressed everything from deadline concerns and the dreaded essay to helping find the right school and all the scholarships that fit any sort of personal profile.
The site works in the student’s favor in a multitude of ways. All students have to do is thoroughly complete a free online profile on Cappex. After, through a complex sorting and filtering software which uses individualized information like GPA, class ranking, test scores as well as extra-curricular activities and community service, the site will match students up with a selection of colleges and universities that meet the individual’s preferences and profile. More than that, they will also determine the likelihood of acceptance to those institutions, which saves a lot of time, guesswork, and money in application fees. Even better, from the potential matches, students can shop for their future school by reading insider student reviews about the dorm rooms, the school cafeteria, activities and classes all written by current or recent students.
In addition to the school match, there is the all-important scholarship match. Cappex isn’t a one-time shot when it comes to offering free money. They have scholarship offerings every month of the year. Many of those don’t even require you to write an essay which is very exciting news especially when students are either bogged down by applying for schools and finishing their senior year in high school or already enrolled at college and too busy studying for the tomorrow’s exam or writing the next paper.
Cappex Easy Money Scholarship is a $1,000 award that you can apply for monthly. You are not required to write that essay or fill out some long and complicated form. You only apply with your profile and fill in a quick bit about your extra-curricular activities and other leadership roles. The site does the rest of the work for you. The only stipulation is that you’re currently an enrolled high school or college student or you plan to enroll in college in the next 12 months. One winner is announced each month on the website. Also, after you have completed your online profile, applying for future scholarships is easy, especially since the site will be able to match future scholarships to you and then suggest them throughout every month of the year. Additionally, Cappex works in close collaboration with the scholarship organizations to make sure that all of the scholarship information is current, the awards are actually available, and the links live, so it’s never a shot in the dark. The scholarship deadline is October 31, 2017.
