America's #1 Scholarship and Grant Guide since 1997

An eFinancialAid.com publication


What's A Duplicate Database? A scholarship or grant search site that uses another company's database.

Example: Princeton Review uses Find Tuition's database. If you run a scholarship search on the Princeton Review website and then run a search on Find Tuition, you're "duplicating" your search effort because you're in essence searching the same database twice!

Conclusion: We're not discounting the fact that many duplicate sites have valuable information for you to disseminate in your educational quest, but if you're only searching for scholarships... our best advice is to go directly to the original database, which in the example above would be Find Tuition.
