Shortcuts to Scholarships: STEM Premier Teams Up with Red Kite

What if we could give students twenty billion dollars to go to college? That would be pretty cool, right?

Well, we can’t exactly give them twenty billion dollars, but we can do the next best thing, which is to directly connect them with $20 billion worth of scholarships.

STEM Premier and Red Kite have teamed up to help our students find and apply for scholarships that are tailor-fit for them based their interests, grades, and other STEM Premier profile information.

There are thousands of scholarships, grants, and fellowships out there for students to apply to. That’s great! However, it can be difficult and tedious for students to find the financial aid opportunities that are right for them, especially when the college search itself can seem like a full-time job.

Red Kite has taken the hard work out of the scholarship application process by automatically matching students on their platform with scholarship opportunities that are unique to each student based on their profile information. The result is that students can much more easily find and apply for scholarships that make sense for them. Students can track their applications and see which ones they have been awarded. They can then use that information to see how close they are to affording the cost of attendance for their preferred schools by using Red Kite’s college cost comparisons.

Red Kite also provides information about loans and other useful tips regarding financial aid, courtesy of their blog and downloadable guides - such as “Financial Aid 101.”

By integrating Red Kite’s financial aid matching engine with our platform, STEM Premier students will be provided with a new feature on their personal dashboard: recommended scholarships based on their unique profile information. The more complete a student’s profile, the more refined their scholarship list will be.

The student’s search for their perfect college can already be stressful enough, even without worrying about how to pay for it. With Red Kite, we are happy to give students the tools they need to make this process a lot easier!
