Avoiding Scholarship Scams
 
Students and parents, do not pay for advice for scholarship opportunities.
Many scams are targeted toward families who are not familiar with the process and who are 1st generation
students, low-income, or athletics.
Parents always want the best opportunities and think that these scammers are professionals.
If you pay for scholarship opportunities, then it may be a scam.
