Real Or Scam?
Received an e-mail from someone who will guarantee you a scholarship, but charge you $50? Scholarships will always be free, you should never have to pay. You should never give any personal information unless you are 100% sure you know who you are dealing with. Scholarships are also never 'guaranteed' so stay away from scholarship scams. For more information go to www.FTC.gov/scholarshipscams
The Financial Aid Office maintains additional information on other scholarships available to FRC students. You can review the additional resources listed at the bottom of this page, or come into the office to check out our book of scholarships. Feather River College and the College's Foundation also offers scholarship opportunities to students. You can review available college and foundation scholarships and obtain the application here.

While every scholarship is special, there are some exceptional standouts from organizations generous enough to give millions (or even billions!) in scholarship money every year to college students. From awards that provide a full scholarship, or “free ride,” to others that more than cover the bulk of expensive degree program costs, the size and breadth of the 10 biggest scholarships for college students will take your breath away. Click here to read more about how to apply for and access these funds.
Many scholarship opportunities exist from several hundreds to several thousands. Don't be discouraged! You are encouraged to use the list of resources below to research and apply for the scholarship(s) that interest you. By using the internet you can also do a basic search for other scholarship opportunities but remember, DO NOT PAY to apply for a scholarship (this is usually a key indicator of a "scholarship scam").
