Scholarship searches
There are many Internet sites that offer scholarship searches that include a variety of public and private scholarships. If you decide to look for scholarships elsewhere, here are some ways to avoid scholarship scams:

  • Never pay to apply for a scholarship.
  • Avoid scholarship guarantees
  • Never provide any personal financial information (bank account info, credit card numbers, etc.)

If you are unsure where to start an extended scholarship search, here are three reputable scholarship search services. Remember the tips above and consider opting out of email updates intended to send you ads as they can fill your email with spam.
