Search .Edu Web Spaces Near a Birthplace With Backyard Scholarship

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/ .
