    SCHOLARSHIPS

    Where do I Find Scholarships?

    Many college scholarships are available to 9th-12th graders!

    The internet offers a variety of free scholarship search sites (see below). Be wary of any entity that guarantees you will be selected for a scholarship. Remember: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! If you think you are a victim of a scholarship scam or financial aid fraud, please report it immediately to the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Inspector General at 1-800-MIS-USED or email oig.hotline@ed.gov.
