On February 21, 2013, I’m First held a Google+ Hangout discussing the best ways to maximize your scholarship search.

Mark Kantrowitz, Publisher of Fastweb.com and FinAid.org, along with Stephanie Siebert, Director of Scholarships at Zinch.com, gave great tips and advice on ways to go about the scholarship search and provided awesome answers to your questions that will truly help students jump-start your scholarship search.

I’m First Scholarship winner and blogger Irvin Gomez discussed his experience searching and applying  for scholarships. As a current junior at Dartmouth College, he also offered advice and tips on how to keep up with applying for scholarships once you are in college.

P.S. We forgot to mention during the Hangout that National Scholarship Providers Association and Fastweb.com (thanks Mark!) recognized us as 2012 Scholarship Provider of the Year for our I’m First Scholarship! (That’s our Executive Director Matt Rubinoff accepting the award from Mark at the NSPA Annual Conference!)
