    "This scholarship is a great option for Hispanic students going for their MBA. Of course it requires an interview and two essays, but the award amount is so helpful! The fact that it is only open to minorities helps lower the total number of people you are competing against, as well."

    "Fastweb is simply a "search engine" and not a scholarship giver so there is no fraud involved. I can't say I won a scholarship there (because I only applied for a few), but I can say that it led me to several local scholarships that are offered by very reputable non-profits in my town. You just need to know that its just a search engine though."

    "I came across AERA Minority Dissertation Fellowship when helping a Hispanic friend try and find info on getting a college scholarship. It is a good program, but it only fits a small demographic of candidates. If you fit the strict requirements than it is a great option to look into. There are a number of options that have less strict requirements so to give access to a greater number of people, but you should definitely check out AERA to see if you or someone you know qualifies if you are looking for a scholarship program.

    "This scholarship is not useless, but it is also not ideal. I was looking for Hispanic specific scholarships. This one, I would assume, would accommodate Hispanic applicants, since that would contribute to diversity. However, it is a very vague classification and I think almost anyone can "contribute to diversity"."

    "I was trying to help a friend find ways to pay for their son's college education, and the National Center For Education Statistics website showed up in my search results. It didn't sound relevant but I checked it out anyway. My suspicions were confirmed: this is not a good resource for finding scholarships for Hispanic students."
