National Scholarships



You can start working on national scholarships as early as the summer. These scholarships are extremely competitive and should be completed with the up-most

 care. If you feel like you will need lots of scholarship money, national scholarships are a great way to start.

           Online Scholarships are a scam if:    

Students are asked to pay a fee

Students are asked for his/her social security number

Students are asked for bank account information

Students see phrases such as "come for a free seminar", "we'll do all the work for you", etc.

Students see 900 area codes (ex: 1-900-###-####)

You believe it sounds too good to be true.
