Beware of Scholarship Scams

• If you must pay money to get money, it might be a scam.

• Legitimate scholarship foundations do not charge application fees;

• Legitimate scholarship foundations cannot guarantee a scholarship;

• If an offer seems suspicious, it's usually with good reason.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) cautions students to look for tell-tales 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."
"The scholarship will cost some money."

For more information visit the FTC's website.
