You don't need to pay for scholarship search assistance; the internet offers a variety of free scholarship search sites (see below). Use these search engines carefully and thoroughly investigate the services they offer. Be wary of any entity that guarantees you will be selected for a scholarship. Remember: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! If you think you are a victim of a scholarship scam or financial aid fraud, please report it immediately to the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Inspector General at 1-800-MIS-USED or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
