One of my teachers had said that he once had a student pay for his entire $60,000 school loan by applying for scholarships. I have had friends apply for over 100 scholarships on there and never get one. Have you ever won one from there?

I’ve never even heard of fastweb… sorry I can’t help.
The only scholarships that people I knew got were either merit scholarships of some point, or need based financial aid type scholarships.

I’ve applied for more than I can count and never won a thing. At my HS, the problem was that for all the scholarships there were, the top 3 students (out of a class of 700) won almost ALL of them. Seriously, those 3 had 1st year tuition covered. No one else got anything. So to me, scholarships are sort of silly… who are they to say what my “need” is? I can barely afford to eat and yet I got beat out for “need” based scholarships by people who are out drinking all weekend and don’t even need a job to survive.

Nope, I think fastweb is a joke or too many people use it. I won a ton of scholarships through my county’s scholarship foundation during my senior year of high school but that’s about it.
