We suggest you do not pay a scholarship search firm to look for scholarships. First of all, you can do the research and save money. Below we list a few web sites where you can begin your search. Secondly, do not fall for claims you are “guaranteed” a scholarship. If you do receive a list of possible scholarship opportunities, you still have to apply and compete for the money. And, third, never give your credit card information to hold a scholarship.
