Warning Signs of Scholarship Scams Scholarship services that charge fees for information you can t get anywhere else. There are many free lists of scholarships available. Check with your school guidance counselor, library and Scholarships.com before you decide to pay someone to do the work for you. Financial Aid Resources Asa.org provides neutral information about student loan debt. CollegeBoard.org provides information on financial aid, college entrance examinations and other resources. CollegeNet.com has online college applications and a scholarship database. CollegeSavings.org (College Savings Plans Network) this site provides information on college savings programs and promotes legislation that will positively affect state programs. Ed.gov was created in 1980 by combining offices from several federal agencies. ED s mission is to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access. FAFSA.Ed.gov is an online federal student aid application. FastWeb.com is a free resource providing financial aid and scholarship information; free updates. FinAid.org is a free Internet resource for student financial aid. Ifap.Ed.gov is a list of financial aid related links. Legion.org provides information on scholarships and aid available for veterans, veteran s dependents and members of the American Legion Family. Review.com is a service of the Princeton Review providing information on financial aid, testing and the application process. SallieMae.org is an online resource for student loans and financial aid. Provides basic information on different types of loans. SWE.org (Society of Women Engineers) offers undergraduate, graduate and re-entry scholarships for women in engineering. Online scholarship application available Paid services that come with seemingly reassuring guarantees. Check the terms closely if there s a guaranteed refund or a money back guarantee. Refund guarantees often have conditions or strings attached. Get refund policies in writing - before you pay. Scholarship programs that require an entrance fee. Before you send money to apply for the scholarship, check it out, even if the fee seems reasonable. A lower fee is no guarantee that a scholarship service or program is legitimate. After all, free money shouldn t cost a thing. Promises that by using a service, you ll have easy access to unclaimed scholarship money. Ignore the myth of unclaimed funds and the companies that advertise huge amounts of unclaimed money. There are unusual scholarships that go unclaimed, but usually it s because the criteria are so esoteric that few, if any, students actually fit the bill. An organization that guarantees you will win an award (usually as a result of paying a fee). Don t believe a promise of guaranteed funds you ll never have to repay. No one can guarantee that you will win a scholarship or grant. Remember: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. An organization that sounds like a non-profit, but has no traceable history. Don t be fooled by official-sounding names and logos. Make sure the foundation, organization or program is legitimate. Claims by a scholarship service to be holding a scholarship for you. Disregard any news that you re a finalist in any contest that requires you to pay a fee for further consideration. A company that claims it will handle all your scholarship applications for you. Resist high-pressure tactics like We ll do all the work for you. Don t be fooled. There s no way around it, you must apply for scholarships or grants yourself. Requests for banking or credit card information to process your application. Do not give out your credit card, bank or checking account numbers to any solicitors who claim they need it for you to be eligible for either a contest or access to exclusive scholarship information. Get information in writing first. It may be a set-up for an unauthorized withdrawal
