    SCHOLARSHIP “BEWARE” TIPS:

    1. “Guaranteed or money back.”
    2. “Can’t get this info anywhere else.”
    3. “May I have a credit card or deposit to hold.”
    4. “We'll do all the work for you.”
    5. “Scholarship will cost money.”
    6. “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.
