For some, deciding which colleges and universities to apply to is a no brainer. But for most high schoolers and students hoping to transfer, making an informed decision to select a school where they’ll succeed is a very tough process.
+U is a brand new online college matching platform that takes the mystery out of difficult decisions to ultimately maximize what they call your ‘Return on Education’. In combination with a comprehensive questionnaire that you complete, data about compensation, the labor market and school performance are taken into consideration. The result is a tailored set of recommended schools for each student.
If you could design your ideal college experience, what would it be and how would it help your future?
To celebrate their launch and help students achieve their higher education goals, +U will be giving away $10,000 college scholarships throughout 2014. To submit your scholarship application, you must describe your ideal college experience and how it will help your future in just 200 words or less.
The free site is most useful for students who are in the process of selecting a college or university to apply to, but it also includes a scholarship database to match each student with all available school funding sources along with career resources.
