It might be painful, but filling out your own applications will save you loads of trouble!
If scholarships were guaranteed, student loans would be a thing of the past.
Scholarships are a fantastic way to save money on your college tuition and to avoid being stuck with loads of student debt after graduation.
But, let’s face it, the process of applying for scholarships can be time-consuming and tedious.
Avoid any company claiming to offer you a guaranteed scholarship. If you receive an email from an unknown and unprofessional-looking company claiming to offer an amazing scholarship if you enter personal information on their site, it’s best to avoid it.
If you’re unsure, simply do a quick Google Search and see if others have reported it as a scam before.
Be wary of any company or scholarship provider who requires you to pay an upfront fee in order to apply. Some scammers will try and lure you in by telling you that they’ll take care of all the scholarship paperwork for you.
You can just sit back, relax, and wait for the money to start rolling in. We hate to break it to you, but that’s because it is.
You should proceed with caution and follow the tips below to avoid getting scammed.
A scholarship shouldn’t cost anything at all to apply for (except postage).
