In addition to grants, many students qualify for scholarship programs. While many scholarships are dependent upon financial need, most also do require the student to maintain good academic standing to renew the scholarship. Scholarships with high academic merit requirements will usually pay more to students than those available to all students. Please note that while many scholarships can be renewed each semester, if you fail to maintain the necessary GPA or other requirements you may not reapply.

Avoid Scholarship Scams

Top 5 red flags that the scholarship is a scam

#1 Application or Search Fees – Avoid scholarships that charge an application fee, the vast majority of scholarships do not cost money.

#2 Disbursement or Redemption Fees- Scholarships should not ask you to pay a fee before you receive the funds.

#3 Guaranteed Scholarships – Beware of scholarship matching services that guarantee you’ll win a scholarship and require a fee for the search.

#4 Credit Card or Bank Account Number – Never give out this information to apply for or hold the scholarship.

#5 Unclaimed scholarships – Very few actual scholarships go unclaimed and the majority of all financial aid comes from the federal government and colleges.
