Nowadays, it seems as though there's an App for almost everything. Shopping. Banking. Restaurants. You name it.
So, it should come as no surprise that, in addition to those Apps that help you search for colleges (among them, College Confidential
), there are Apps that let you find, match, save and share college scholarships. Why, there's even an App to help you find parking on campus
! [Clearly, they never looked for parking at Queens College
For anyone who visits the Apple Store online, or iTunes
a simple search under "college" reveals dozens of Apps for the asking,
many of them absolutely free. Of course, you often get what you pay for,
but still, who could argue with free? [Not to worry, Android fans. Google Apps
has colleges covered as well.]

, brought to you by the folks at The Washington Post

save and share links to scholarship opportunities. Of course, the App
has its drawbacks. Just try, for instance, to write a scholarship essay
on your iPhone!]
Granted, there's nothing you can't find through one of the many online college scholarship search engines (try Fastweb
, to name but a few), but literally having a scholarship search tool at
hand may well give students the incentive (as if getting cold, hard cash for college isn't incentive enough) to actually look and apply for
Besides, now when your mother tells you to ditch
the iPhone at the dinner table, you've got an excuse (lame as it may be)
to keep it nearby -- Gee, mom. I'm searching for college scholarships!
Good luck with that.
