Be careful of scholarship scams. Organizations that "promise" or "guarantee" to find a student a certain amount of money, or require a fee, should be scrutinized carefully before using their services.
Do not forget to check with your high school’s guidance office, local clubs, organizations and the chamber of commerce. All of these may have scholarship information. Ask your employer as well for any tuition assistance they offer.
