Younger students—these are for you. Each year, Unigo.com, after partnering up with Scholarshipexperts.com, sponsors an array of awards, each of which has a specific question you are not likely to find on any other application. Questions range from “If you were inventing a widget for high school or college students, what would your widget be?” to “Imagine that your high school/college has been overrun with Zombies. Use your brain to flesh out a plan.” For younger students just dipping their toes into the financial aid waters, this one is a great place to start since most essays are limited to 250 words. On top of that, Unigo.com has a nifty personalized scholarship-matching tool here.
