Finding Scholarships

Be Forewarned

When you search for scholarships online, be aware that you should never have to pay for access or information AND you should never provide your personal information anywhere except on an actual application form at the website of the group providing the scholarship.  Marketers and criminals will try to lure you in with offers that sound too good to be true (because they are!).  When in doubt, check with your local scholarship office to ensure that you are spending your time and energy seeking funding from reputable foundations and organizations.  

The federal government provides information about avoiding scams that's good to look over.

Below, we provide links to scholarship search sites that are reputable, but even a reputable site can get infiltrated by a scammer, so stay alert!
