Scholarship Search Warning!

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) cautions students to look and listen for these tell-tale lines of scholarship scams:

  • "The scholarship is guaranteed or your money back."

  • "You can't get this information anywhere else."

  • "I just need your credit card or bank account number to hold this scholarship."

  • "We'll do all the work. You just pay a processing fee."

  • "The scholarship will cost some money."

  • "You've been selected" by a "national foundation" to receive a scholarship - or "You're a finalist" in a contest you never entered.
