Beware of Scholarship Scams

If someone guarantees you scholarship money if you will pay them for their services or if a company promises to do all the work for you if you will come to their informational workshop, you may be in the midst of a scholarship scam! Please see the college counselors if you have specific questions about a letter or phone call you receive, and remember not to give your personal information out over the phone.
