There are literally hundreds of thousands of scholarship opportunities in the United States. That’s a lot.

Extra cash to pay for college is great. But searching for the right scholarships seems like it could be a full-time job! Where do you even begin?   

No worries. We’ve got your back.

Our partnership with Red Kite, a scholarship matching engine, allows Tallo student users to match with over $20 billion in scholarships. And it’s really easy. We give you a Tallo profile to show yourself off. Red Kite reviews your profile in order to plug you into the right scholarship opportunities. Great teamwork, right? Like I said, we’ve got your back.  

And speaking of your profile, here’s a tip: the more complete it is, the better scholarship matches you’ll get with Red Kite. There may be a scholarship somewhere out there that was created for someone just like you. So be sure that your profile is telling your whole story!

What kinds of scholarships? There are all kinds! Just check out the financial aid info on our Tallo dashboard to find a whole list of them. To give you an idea, here are a few examples:
