Having this information all in one place saves you time otherwise spent searching individual college websites. It also gives you the ability to filter, sort, and compare ANY criteria or combination of criteria that’s important to your family.

You can quickly and easily use the spreadsheet to find colleges where your student is in the top 25th percentile of applicants and more likely to receive merit scholarships.

R2C Insights (CI) can help you discover schools that are generous with merit scholarships and fit the criteria most important to your student.
