Have you noticed that universities sometimes focus their research particularly on people who were born nearby or in the state?
That’s what Backyard Scholarship looks for. Enter a name and a birthplace in America, and Backyard converts the city state to a zip code and finds all higher education institutions within a 30-mile radius. It then assembles the domain names of those institutions into a Google query and provides that URL.
If you click the button and nothing happens, double-check to make sure you have the city and state right.
You’ll need a Data.gov API Key to use this tool. You can get them free from https://api.data.gov/signup/ .
