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.
