Proactive tool lets students earn scholarship money in high school
Pros: Students can earn micro-scholarships for a variety of activities, and the site can help students find the best matches for their talents and their budget.
Cons: There's no option to earn once a student is in college, not all colleges are connected to the program, and there are some concerns about privacy and security of student data.
Bottom Line: This tool takes some mystery out of the financial aid process, and the ability to earn early may motivate financially strapped or otherwise reluctant students to dream bigger.
