Warning: This is the time of year when juniors and seniors begin receiving mail solicitations for scholarship search services. Carefully consider before purchasing such services. In general it is more productive to research opportunities in the Career Center and continue the search with the information found. After exhausting other resources, it may be time to consider such a service. There are some things to avoid as unproductive at best and outright fraud at worst. Here are six signs that a scholarship isnot what it seems: “The scholarship is guaranteed or your money back;” “You cannot get this information anywhere else;” “May I have your credit card or bank account number to hold this scholarship?” “We will do all the work;” “The scholarship will cost some money;” “You have been selected by a ‘National Foundation’ to receive a scholarship,” or “You’re a finalist” in a contest you never entered. If you have further questions please contact the Career Center.
