Scholarship/Grant Searching by Prompt - Prompt-based Search engines don't exist?

I've just finished my college essay process and have a bunch of essays in my google drive. I've been thinking of re-using these essays for scholarships since they're already here. So I've tried searching for similar prompted scholarships to the one's I've already answered to, but I can't seem to find much by copy pasting the prompt into google.

I haven't found any websites that have a function to type in a prompt to find an essay.

I don't get why no scholarship engines have this. It'll save so much time.

The closest thing is on "goingmerry" where they bundle together a bunch of similar prompts together. But This "bundling" feature isn't customizable by the searcher.

Does a Scholarship Search engine that takes a prompt as an input exist? If not, what's a good way of finding.

If there isn't one, I might try to go about piecing together a search engine that does take into prompts, or I'll contact goingmerry or some of the companies and ask them about it. But then they might take my idea. But as long as I get to find my scholarships I'm fine haha. Thanks for the help!

    How about finding scholarships in your areas of interest...and seeing if you can use your essay or review it. If not...just wrote another essay.

    It’s a scholarship. You are hoping to get a LOT of money...right! But you aren’t willing to do the work? I don’t think I understand that thinking.
