Beware of scams
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) warns students to be careful in using scholarship search companies.
While some firms are legitimate, others aren’t. A tip-off could be if the firm “guarantees” or “promises”
scholarships or grants. No reputable firm can legitimately make such a claim.
Beware of these telltale statements:
“This scholarship is guaranteed or your money back.”
“You can’t get this information anywhere else.”
“We’ll need your credit card or bank account number to hold this scholarship.”
“We’ll do all the work for you!”
“There’s a fee to apply for this scholarship.”
“You’ve been selected by a national foundation to receive a scholarship.”
“You’re a finalist …”
