When conducting your search for scholarship opportunities beware of scams. Most scams ask that you send the organization a check, money order, credit card information or a bank account number in exchange they will send you a large check or deposit money into your account. If you asked for any of this information, do not give it; it is probably a scam. Scholarships are free and you should not provide any type of payment or payment information to receive it. If you are unsure, check with the financial aid office at GateWay; our staff is very knowledgeable and can help you determine if it's worth following up on.
