Students Beware of Scholarship Scams
It’s that time of year when unscrupulous individuals attempt to take advantage of students seeking scholarship aid. Our office has been notified that some of our students have been receiving scam mailings offering scholarship aid. When applying for a scholarship, keep these points in mind:

  1. When applying for a scholarship never give out information on your bank account or credit card information.
  2. You should never have to pay a fee in order to apply for a scholarship.
  3. Avoid any organization stating they will "guarantee" you a scholarship.

Please feel free to contact the Mount Marty College Financial Assistance Office if you have any concerns before applying for an outside scholarship.
