Scholarship Search Engines and are excellent resources students may use free of charge for scholarship searches and information. 

Note About Scholarship Resources

Please be aware, although there are many legitimate scholarship search sites on the internet, there are also many sites that could be referred to as “scams."  A good rule of thumb to follow: if a scholarship site requires a payment or a commitment that will result in charges later on, search for a new site.  There are many companies promising students and their families funding grants, scholarships and low-interest loans for a minimal payment of $30 to $100.  In return for the payment, the family receives the FAFSA application.  The first letter in FAFSA stands for FREE.  Don’t pay for an application you can (and probably already did) fill out for free.  If you are uncertain about what search engine to use, or have received a mailing from a scholarship search company (or any company promising to assist you with financing your student’s college education) contact your financial aid office immediately.
