Scholarships are a wonderful option for students that would like help paying for school. As with anything good, there are people out there who will take advantage of students' trust and hopes for the future.

The best rule of thumb to follow is that if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. For more information on how to scout a Scholarship Scam, read this article from FastWeb.
