    Well, maybe this will help translate:

    Fastweb is a scholarship-seekers website.

    There is no real limit on how many scholarships you are 'allowed' to have, only how many you can get.

    There are too many different types of scholarships to list here, but suffice it to say that you can get money for athletics, arts, music, ethnic reasons, academic excellence, etc.

    Some scholarships only pay for expenses and books, some just cut you a check and let you do whatever you like.

    Good luck, and take advantage of all the resources out there.
    You'll need to fill out a FAFSA (Free Application for Financial Student Aid), but not till you're closer to graduating.

    Cheers

    If you want to get into Berkeley and you're a freshman, then you got a lot more other stuff to worry about than scholarships. Dont even think about scholarships until senior year and spend more time on academics. Already doing well in school? Great, just dont get overconfident and let your guard down. In any case, all the advice in the above posts are good. BTW, FAFSA is first come, first serve, thats why I sent mine on the 12/31/05.
