Viewing Scholarships

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
Two notes for the Moderators, and I'm sure you guys will also have your own comments to add:

1. Even expired scholarships are still in "My Dashboard" when they should just be automatically removed. Why do I need to see a scholarship that expired in October 2010?

2. If you're promoting scholarships make them scholarships! Why am I getting scholarship notifications about "scholarships" that are actually just credit cards, lines of credit, or other programs that don't offer any scholarship money?

Please fix ASAP.

Yeah, it's annoying when you see "you have 49 scholarships on your dashboard" but then it actually turns out that you can only apply for like 10 because all the others have expired.

2.theres an option when you're filling out your profile to not receive other random information. It's a little checkbox thingy.

I have that checked. But it's because SA considers credit cards to be "Scholarships."

Also, how about an additional filter to allow us to take out the ones that cost money? Never before have I seen "application fees" but now I have run through a bunch that have a $25 application fee.

Although it is nice to get to apply for contests for shoppers drug mart and victoria secret gift cards, I would much rather win $1000 for school, and no cosmetics or underwear.

Yes, I agree with the fact that it is annoying how you might be interested in applying for a scholarship, and then realizing that it has already expired. This has happened to me a lot of times, and I admit that it's really annoying to me, but then I remember that when I applied for a scholarship last year, it was convenient to easily find back the link to the website of that scholarship.

I totally agree with the rest of you, it is quite annoying to receive scholarship notices that tells me I need to apply for a credit card to GET A CHANCE to receive a scholarship. No thanks, I'd rather have scholarships that require some work to receive.
