Scholarships are one way to help cover costs of education. Scholarships vary in size and application requirements. Unlike loans, they do not have to be repaid. The scholarship application process is separate from the application for federal and state financial aid. Students can search for scholarships year round and deadlines are scattered throughout the year.

Scholarship Search Tips:
- Read the application carefully! Pay close attention to instructions and items that are required in order to process your application.Type all application forms, letters, essays, questionnaires, or any other information. Proofread all materials. It is always a good idea to have someone else look over the application and attached statements.
- Make a copy for your records. Use these copies to develop a portfolio of materials.
- Include a self-addressed stamped envelope when requesting applications or information.

AVOID SCHOLARSHIP SCAMS
No one can guarantee you a scholarship. Tip: If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. To find out how to spot, stop, and report a scholarship scam, contact the Federal Trade Commission online at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/scholarship/Six signs of a scholarship scam:
- "This scholarship is guaranteed or your money back." Remember, too good to be true.
- "You can't get this information anywhere else." There are many free lists of scholarships available.
- "May I have your credit card or bank account number to hold this scholarship?" Do not give out your credit card or bank account number on the phone without getting information in writing first. It may be a set-up to bill your account.
- "We'll do all the work." Don't be fooled. There's no way around it-you must apply for scholarships yourself.
- "The scholarship will cost some money." Don't pay anyone who claims to be "holding" a scholarship for you. Free money shouldn't cost a thing.
- "You have been selected by a national foundation to receive a scholarship" -or- "You're a finalist" in a contest you never entered. Before you send money to apply for a scholarship, check it out. Make sure the foundation or program is legitimate.
