Fastweb announces its seventh annual Student Contributor series, a program designed for student writers to share their first-hand experiences on the topics that matter most to their peers. Fastweb (, a member of the Monster network, is the leading website for scholarship and financial aid information.

The Student Contributors team addresses topics for all student levels that include; managing college applications, admissions decision making, scholarship tips and many more student-centric topics. Additionally, they share their student life experiences from a high school, college and graduate school perspective.

“We look forward to another year of dynamic and relevant articles from our diverse Student Contributors team” said Mark Nelson, Vice President, Fastweb. “These student writers provide unique insights into their personal experience through their articles, and we believe our students benefit from the experience of their peers as they work toward meeting their college objectives”.

In June, Fastweb began conducting outreach to extend the opportunity to apply for the 2018-19 Student Contributor series to all its members. Applicants were required to provide a brief personal summary, as well as a 250-word writing sample on a topic relating to their experience with the scholarship, financial aid or admission process. The 2018–19 Student Contributor team was selected from the many talented writers who applied. Here is this year’s team:
