Scholarship Search Tips from Financial Aid
- Never pay for a scholarship search.
- If a school lists a web resource you should not assume the school endorses the scholarship or source.
- Use good judgment. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
- Check with your place of worship and fraternal organizations that your family belongs to, such as clubs, unions, work, etc.
- Check to see if any of the businesses (like banks or credit unions) you frequent offer scholarships.
- Do not provide contact methods that provide solicitors an opportunity to sell you products or services. Consider using an email created expressly for the purpose of a scholarship search.
