Don't Fall for Scholarship Scams: Applying for financial aid is free!! You will only need to fill out the FAFSA application and the CSS Profile. Be weary of companies offering to find scholarships for you for a fee. Go to to learn more about scholarship scams. You can actually search for free online or go to your local library for a list of scholarships. Check out other scholarship search services on this website.

Some students may feel that it takes too much time to apply for these scholarships.  Remember that financial aid packages are generally made up of scholarships or grants which do not have to be repaid, loans which do have to be repaid and work study.  Private scholarships can be used to take the place of loans.  Consider how long it will take to earn $2,000 to pay back a loan when a student is earning $20 an hour or less after graduation.  Then consider how long it takes to fill out an application for a scholarship and you will realize that the time is well spent.
