NOTICE TO ALL STUDENTS:
Beware of Scholarship Scams!

Legitimate scholarships do not charge a fee and welcome your application at no cost. Be aware that there are numerous scholarship scams that charge a fee with your application. If you receive a "handwritten" postcard from American Scholarships with a note that says, "It's been impossible to get in touch with you. Please call us at your earliest convenience." - be aware that it is a scam.

Many of these are financial aid scams that require you to pay a fee for services that are generally free. Students should be diligent and research organizations before applying for any scholarship opportunities.

Scholarship Criteria – Our belief is that achieving a high grade point average should not be the only criteria for determining who deserves to be helped. For that reason we are offering a scholarship that will be awarded on the basis of character, as determined by evaluating the essays that are submitted.
