BEWARE OF SCHOLARSHIP SCAMS

Scholarship Search Websites:

  1. TIP: The internet is a great resource tool for your scholarship search. There is plenty of FREE information available, so NO need to pay for a scholarship search service.  BE CAUTIOUS with your personal information and don’t pay for information that is free. You may want to set up a second e-mail that you use just for scholarship search information. This helps you review and eliminate junk e-mails. Good Luck!!!
  2. NOTE: Please tell your counselor about any scholarships that you have been awarded so that we can recognize and celebrate your achievement at Graduation.
