Tips for Searching For Scholarships Online:
- Search for scholarships closely related to your field of study, financial status, and cultural or ethnic background.
- Be wary of search services that ask you to pay a fee- these services DO NOT GUARANTEE that you will receive a scholarship.
- Be wary of any service that offers “free money” or “guaranteed scholarships”.
- Keep in mind that information you provide online COULD be distributed to other companies so be cautious about providing your phone number and/or e-mail address.
