SKIP THE ADS! (Some of the ads are legitimate, but sadly I can’t vouch for them all. Avoid the single mom or single dad scholarships–I and a few other students have received calls, and some of the operators are not scrupulous, trying to pressure students in pursuing degrees at for-profit colleges and to take on heavy student loans.

They often ask very extensive, very invasive questions if you sign up for them, in order to give that information to marketers.)

Don’t forget to check out page 2 in the PDF Handouts in an earlier blog entry for more but not very well-known sources of scholarship information.
