Extremely informative book that extensively lists any scholarship you might think of and those you won't. What is especially helpful is the categories of scholarships (by activities, nationalities, home state etc...). If you really look at the types of categories you will find some scholarships you may never have thought of (at least that was the case for me). Truly worth the money.

As a parent this is a great book to have. Granted its 3 inches thick. But we were able to find and apply to a number of scholarships which resulted in almost $10K in aid for our college freshman.

You have to apply to win - but it does work.

Would I buy these again - Most definitely!

The book is too disorganized to help you with the scholarship research process, especially if you are a graduate or returning to school student. For instance, in the State section you would expect for the scholarships to start from Alabama - Wyoming, instead you are presented with scholarships in different states(e.g. the first scholarship is from Ohio followed by Hawaii, followed by Arkansas). You have to read each and every scholarship in the State section to make sure you did not miss any scholarships in your state. I also think readers would benefit from separating scholarships that are strictly catered to high schools students, graduate and returning adults. If you are a grad student, you have to spend a lot of time distilling the scholarships. The good points were that there were many scholarships and I did enjoy Sections 1- 6, which is great, but the organization of the book makes it hard for someone to research, especially if you are a graduate, returning to college or continuing you education student. I would recommend for high school students only.

A lot of good information in one source. It requires a lot of time to go through it, but that's understandable considering all the different sources of scholarships ... considering the potential savings on college costs, it's absolutely worth it ...

For this book to be the 2013 edition, many of the websites and scholarships were no longer valid. The set up of the book was ok, alphabetical order, but I would have found it more useful it was broken down into age/grade qualifications. I am in graduate school and went through pages of this book without finding anything I could apply for unless I just submitted applications to everything and hoped for a bite. It's too early to see if I won any of the scholarships but fingers crossed. Definitely best for high schoolers and undergrads.

I bought every book I could find about scholarships and this one takes the cake. Keep in mind that if you are a starving student you could buy the 2012 or 2011 for way less. I have compared my 2013 book with the one at the library that is two years older and they are basically the same.

This is a must-have reference for anyone who is considering college or has a child that is about to take the plunge. This book is jam packed with scholarships and all the information on what is required to apply for each one. It is an amazing reference and for the low price, I don't know why anyone wouldn't who is in college or planning to be wouldn't have this on their bookshelf.

It seems like a good idea, but it's not the greatest thing ever.

1. It's not very useful for non-traditional students. Unfortunately, a lot of the scholarships are for people with free time on their hands to spend a lot of time volunteering or doing leadership positions in clubs. Many non-traditional students simply don't have time for things like that. We have bills to pay, children to take care of... and other responsibilities.

2. A lot of the scholarships require you to be a member of a group first. Most of the ones for students from Iowa required you be a high school student that's a member of FFA.

3. Many of the scholarships are state specific. I was super excited to see so many education scholarships but most of them were directed at specific states.

There's lots of good information at the beginning though before they get into the scholarships but you can read all of that info in the sample of the kindle version.

I'm just gonna do my best on my own. I suppose.
