Avoiding Scams

  • cliffyB will never ask you to pay to apply for a scholarship.
  • cliffyB will never ask you to provide credit card information or social security number.
  • cliffyB will never guarantee for winning the scholarship money.

If any company or institution requires or does any of the above, the opportunity is most likely a scam. Make sure to report to your local student services office.

UPDATE: We want to thank all the applicants for their writing and time put into being a part of our essay scholarship program. Unfortunately, we received only ONE entry that simply did not meet our basic guidelines of spelling and grammar. We will be retaking the essay portion of the scholarship program in the near future with the goal of awarding at least $1,000 in scholarships to students in 2022.
