SCHOLARSHIP “BEWARE” TIPS:
- “Guaranteed or money back.”
- “Can’t get this info anywhere else.”
- “May I have credit card or deposit to hold.”
- “Well do all the work for you.”
- “Scholarship will cost money.”
- “Finalist in a contest you never entered.”
College Board: The Facts on Scholarships
- You should never pay for a scholarship search. There are many free ones.
- Organizations like businesses, clubs and churches usually fund private scholarships for students who belong to a certain group or meet certain requirements.
- These institutions want the funds to go to qualified students. They don't keep the money a secret.
- If you have to pay money to get money, it's probably a scam.
