Beware of Scholarship Scams
Almost 95% of all student aid comes directly from the federal and state governments or the school itself using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Be wary of any financial aid search company that charges a fee to match students with sources of financial aid.
There are no guarantees that the company will find any aid that you can’t find yourself.
