    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.
