College Planning Calendar: Important Dates & Application Deadlines
Beware! Watch Out for Online Scams!
There are several free services / search engines on the internet that allow you to enter some information about yourself in which you will get personalized results/awards based on your profile, but beware, don't fall prey to scholarship scams.
The FTC cautions students to look for tell tale lines:
- The scholarship is guaranteed or your money back.
- You can't get this information anywhere else.
- I just need your credit card or bank account number to hold this scholarship.
- We'll do all the work.
- The scholarship will cost some money.
- You've been selected by a 'national foundation' to receive a scholarship" or "You're a finalist" in a contest you never entered.
