Scholarship Search Tips

It takes time and energy to search for and apply for scholarships, but your investment of time can be well worth it. To ensure success, you will need to prepare, search, evaluate, and apply.

Online Safety information and tips — When searching for outside scholarships, please keep the following safety tips in mind:

  • Do not pay to apply for a scholarship or pay a scholarship search service to search for you.
  • Do not give personal information such as your social security number, bank account information, or credit card numbers.
  • Review the website of the company or organization offering the scholarship to make sure it is legitimate. Is there a phone number to contact the company? Do they provide information on past winners? Is the information well-written or does it contain spelling and grammar errors?
  • Trust your instincts. If the offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.
  • The Federal Trade Commission, our nation’s consumer protection agency, cautions students to look for these tell-tale lines:
    • "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.
