Beware of financial aid and scholarship scams. If an organization is asking for money to apply for financial aid and/or scholarships, it is probably a scam. If you have any questions about the validity of financial aid and/or a scholarship, contact the counselor’s office or the Better Business Bureau at www.bbb.org.
