      MALDEF Scholarship Resource Guide

      This is an extensive list of scholarships that may not inquire about immigration status or require a valid social security number to redeem the award.  It is suggested that you look through the scholarship list and select scholarships that are applicable to you.  As a general rule, if an application asks for your social security number and you do not have one yet, leave that space blank but fill out and turn in the complete application.  Lying about your legal status or providing a false social security number is a federal offense.
       
      You should directly contact the organization that offers those specific scholarships and ask if you meet the criteria to receive the scholarship. We suggest that you review other scholarship lists for other possible scholarship opportunities, as listed at the end of this document.  Also, inquire with your guidance counselor at school to learn about scholarship opportunities in your local area.  Current college students are familiar with scholarships and can serve as a valuable resource.
       
      DO NOT pay any organization, company, or individual to apply for scholarships, for scholarship search assistance, or for access to scholarship lists.  Legitimate scholarship programs NEVER ask for an application fee.  Beware of scholarship scams.

    PHOTOS

     Most scholarships require a black and white or color photo. Get them now for scholarships that will be listed throughout the year. Save copies of everything you fill out because many scholarships require the same type of information such as career goals, accomplishments, references, etc. GOOD LUCK! 

    IMPORTANT

    Please check the college catalog for scholarships and necessary papers for any school in which you are sending in an admissions application. Many financial aid offices require a separate financial aid application in addition to the FAFSA.


    NOTE: Where applications require a nomination, you must stop by student services to acquire the topic to write an essay that will get you an anonymous entry for consideration.  This means that when you turn in your essay it will be numbered so that the committee will only see a number not a name. The counselors will be the only people who will know the writer’s identity. The counselors are a non- voting member of the scholarship committee. This is to ensure that every student has an equal opportunity and eliminates voter bias.  Be sure that you first meet the requirements expected by the group giving the scholarship before you request the topic.
