Hints, tips and advice for finding Graduate Scholarships
File the FAFSA early. Some colleges and scholarship programs require applicants to have completed the FAFSA before applying for a scholarship.
Remember the golden rule for scholarships: Money flows to the student, never the other way around. If a scholarship asks for money, a bank account number, credit card number or other personal information, it is almost certainly a scam.
Some companies and organizations will conduct scholarship searches for a fee. Some even “guarantee” that the student will win a scholarship. Such guarantees are bogus. Don’t spend money searching for scholarships, when better quality information is available online for free.
A good bit of advice is to search two of the free scholarship matching services, such as StudentScholarshipSearch.com and one other, such as Fastweb.com and CollegeBoard.com. There is enough overlap in the scholarship matches listed by most scholarship databases that it isn’t worth paying to search low-quality paid scholarship search services.
Finally, follow all application instructions carefully. Meet all deadlines and follow up to ensure all materials get to the appropriate party in a timely manner.
