Tips for Online Scholarship Searches:

Many online financial assistance search services request information about you so they can find financial assistance programs for which you may be eligible. Some of these companies may send you information about other services that they provide, or they may sell your information to another company. Read the fine print carefully.
Be cautious of scholarship scams. Visit the Federal Trade Commission for more information.
You should not be required to provide credit card information to use a free scholarship search.
