Scholarship Tools on the Web

Eastern provides these website links as a convenience for students, and — with the exception of the links listed directly under College Foundation of West Virginia — in doing so does not suggest or imply any endorsement or recommendation regarding their services. Most of these services require you to fill out online forms with personal information — some more than others. (And when interacting on the Web, you should  always be careful about what kinds of information you provide online, because online identity theft is a very real and dangerous occurrence.)

Also, unless you check or uncheck the appropriate box before you submit an online form, they may send you their own newsletters and solicitations, and/or distribute your email address to their advertisers.

A good strategy is to open up a free email account with one of the large email services (Google, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.) so you can dedicate an email address only to your scholarship searches. That way you will not clutter up your regular account with emails from advertisers.
