Scholarship Resources for Minority Students Powered By Docstoc
					                       Welcome to Scholarship Resources for
                              Diverse Populations!

  Compiled by Valerie Garr, Assistant Director-Director of Diversity Relations &
          Outreach, Office of Admissions, The University of Iowa (1/07)

        This is an evolving list of potential scholarship resources for minority and
   underrepresented students. This list includes scholarship and financial aid resource
 information from sources predominantly not connected to the University of Iowa. Thus,
 unless noted, the University of Iowa does not determine award criteria, dollar amounts,
    application procedures, deadlines, or future renewal. We believe this scholarship
    information may be helpful in assisting prospective and current students with their
     pursuit to finance a college education. The websites listed have been checked for
     authenticity. We recommend that you use this listing and the other information
                      provided as a supplement to filing the FAFSA.

Tips for Getting Scholarships and Other Financial Aid:
    Work hard to get and maintain good grades in school
    Perform as well as you can on your ACT or SAT exam
    Start early looking for scholarship money: internet, library, your community etc...
    If a scholarship requires a letter of recommendation, ask your teacher or counselor
    If a scholarship requires you to write an essay, have a teacher or counselor read your
        essay before you submit it
    Read the forms, applications, and deadlines carefully
    Save time: File your FAFSA electronically as soon as possible after January 1st.
    Complete a FAFSA each year that you are in college and follow through on submitting
        all of the required documents for financial aid
    Ask questions when you are unsure

Tips To Protect Yourself From Scholarship Scams:
http://www.finaid.org/scholarships/scams.phtml

1. If you must pay money to get money, it might be a scam, unless purchasing a book on
   scholarships or aid
2. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
3. Spend the time, not the money, looking for scholarships
4. Never invest more than a postage stamp to get information about scholarships
5. No one can guarantee that you will win a scholarship
