Avoid Scams

 

Scholarships that sound too good to be true usually are.  The number one tip: If you have to pay money to get money, it's probably a scam.  In general, be wary of scholarships with an application fee, scholarship matching services who guarantee success, advance-fee loan scams and sales pitches disguised as financial aid "seminars".
