MSU Scholarships
https://msu.academicworks.com/
Michigan State University has hundreds of scholarship opportunities available. Opportunities can be a combination of general scholarships (open to all students) and departmental scholarships (restricted to students within a specific major or field of study). Scholarships may be recommended to you at different times throughout the year as applications become available, so we suggest visiting MSU Scholarships often. Please keep in mind this section lists scholarships available regardless if you are eligible or not. Please note that some scholarships utilize an "Auto-Match" feature which will not require you to apply directly for the scholarship to be considered eligible. These scholarships will be indicated by the word "None" in the Action column. For scholarships for which you need to apply, please make a note of the deadline, as late submissions will not be accepted. Admitted students who have paid their deposit and currently enrolled students: Sign in using your MSU NetID and password to begin the scholarship application process. Once logged in, the system will automatically direct you to required applications.

FastWeb
http://www.fastweb.com/.
If you have access to the world wide web and are willing to fill in the online forms, this service promises a free customized list of financial aid sources. FastWeb is actually a searchable database of more than 400,000 private sector scholarships, fellowships, grants, and loans from more than 3,000 sources for all levels of higher education. First-time visitors have to register (first and last name and a user ID), then complete a profile, including background and fields of study. Registrants then receive a list of all currently relevant funding sources. The registration information is stored and can be used on subsequent visits. The entire sign-up process, and delivery of available funding sources, can be a bit tedious: about five to twenty minutes, depending on the connection speed. Approximately 500 new scholarships are added to the database daily, so registrants can stay current.
