SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION & WEB SITES:

Keep the following tips in mind when using the Internet or scholarship search organizations to find student financial assistance for education and training after high school:

First, ask about possible sources of financial assistance in your local community and state, such as businesses, community groups, schools, religious and civic organizations.

Your local library may have scholarship books available in the reference section.

Be cautious of scholarship scams. Visit the Federal Trade Commission online at www.ftc.gov for more information.

You should not be required to provide credit card information to use a free scholarship search.

Many online financial assistance search services request information about you in order to find financial assistance programs you may be eligible for. Some of these companies may send you information about other services that they provide or even sell your information to another company. Read the fine print carefully.

Many online financial assistance search services list duplicate programs; however, the more services you use, the greater your chances of finding additional programs.

If you are interested in federal student loans, do not apply for them online go through office at the school you are planning to attend and ask about the process to apply for student loans.
