Scholarship Scams

Watch out for scholarship scams

Never give out your social security number or bank information for a scholarship.

There are six common scams: 

  1. Application and processing fees
  2. Loan Fees
  3. Guaranteed winnings
  4. “Everybody is eligible” – Scholarships all have selective criteria
  5. Unclaimed aid myth – “Billions of dollars of scholarships go unclaimed every year”
  6. “We will apply on your behalf”
