Scholarships are an important part of making your college career a success! Here are some tips and places to look for scholarships.

Scholarship Scams: Beware!

Not all scholarship services and scholarship providers are out to help students. Warning: Financial aid/scholarships should be a free process. No sponsor can guarantee that you will win an award! Scam artists will ask for a credit card or bank account information and then drain your account or run up charges on your credit card. If in doubt, ask a counselor!

Other Suggestions

The best source of scholarships, aside form the opportunities through the federal government (FAFSA), continues to be financial aid from colleges themselves and the local community (Elks Club, Rotary, etc.) Parents should also contact the Human Resources office at their job site to inquire about scholarships available to children of employees.
