About Scholarship Matching Services

I want to spend some time discussing the scholarship matching services. Finding scholarships on your own is more time consuming but generally yields more productive results.

The Generaly Motors Minority Dealers Association has given over one million dollars in the past but suspended their 2009 - 2010 school year scholarship. It might be worth contacting them for the following school year at GMMDA

This scholarship is designed for ethnic minority students and worth looking into for the 2010-2011 school year.
