Scholarship Search Engines
Scholarship Search Companies and Scams
There are many businesses who would like to sell you the opportunity for them to search for scholarships for you. They will promise to locate several sources of scholarships which you qualify for and make it seem as if they could assist you in securing a better financial aid package than if you sought aid yourself. We highly discourage paying anyone to do this type of service, which the student can do for free utilizing the same data, directly on the web, and can get the same pertinent financial aid application and process assistance directly from our office for free!
