Avoid Scholarship Scams!
While navigating the scholarship process you may come across organizations that promise scholarships in exchange for a fee. The goal of scholarship scams is to deceive like asking for money in advance or promising a scholarship with a "money back guarantee." Information that these companies provide to you is available free of charge through contacting school counselors, colleges, and many legitimate websites such as CFNC. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) provides information to the public about ways to avoid scholarships scams. To learn more about scholarships scams, visit FTC's Website to learn more.
