I really like this site, and it has been incredibly useful to me for looking for scholarships that are simple and easy to apply for. However I would really like to see less sweepstakes scholarships and more that are personalized to the career field I would like to enter into. I feel as of now I'm seeing a great deal of scholarships that require me to sign up for this site and the next to earn a reward. I personally would like to see more scholarships that again are relevant to a certain career field and or university.

This is top of the line educational institution where a very close friend of mine attended. I hope to potentially attend the World Campus once I complete my associates degree.
