Did You Know?

You should not have to pay an application fee for a scholarship! That's right, it should always be 100% free. If it's not then you know to hit the back button immediately. You'd be surprised at how many sites are out there trying to take advantage of new students. So be on your toes and be sure to do your homework on any other sites you use that ask for an excessive amount of personal information.

Remember it's never too early to start looking for financial aid. While you can miss a deadline, having extra time to work on your app isn't going to hurt you. Also keep in mind that you don't have to be at the top of your class to qualify, actually going through the process of submitting your application is half of the battle. It's crazy how many people give up without even actually putting themselves out there.

In addition to BrokeScholar, you may want to use other free scholarship websites to increase your chances of finding more opportunities. Lastly to find local awards that aren't listed in books or databases, look for notices posted on bulletin boards at your high school's guidance office, the public library and outside the financial aid office of nearby colleges and universities.
