    Scholarship Scams and Warning Signs

    Students and parents should be careful when searching for scholarships. The following are some common fraud warning signs when searching for private/outside scholarships

    • You are required to pay to search for or to receive a scholarship.
    • The application is requesting a bank account/credit card information.
    • The scholarship is guaranteed or your money back.
    • You're a finalist in a contest you never entered.

    We encourage all students and parents to learn more from the Federal Trade Commission about common scholarship scams.  You can learn how to protect yourself during your scholarship search.

     

    For additional information, please contact the HACC Financial Aid Services Office. Most scholarships require completion of the FAFSA by April 15.
