Are you looking for programs in a particular field of study?  I sort
through scholarship programs on a fairly regular basis and there are
virtually thousands available which are not frauds (and that is just
for history and anthropology scholarships)

Though you are right, some such programs are frauds and I post a
warning to that effect when I publish my list updates.  Scholarship
shopping is still somewhat of a buyers beware market.

In that case, I will begin by providing you with a couple of the
scholarship scam warnings and links I post on my own scholarship
sections.  You are right to take great care in selecting scholarship
programs.  The problem of scholarship scams is not a small one and is
not limited only to the US.

Federal Trade Commission __ Official US Government information about
scholarship scams, how to avoid them and what to do about them if you
are caught up in one.  "Recognizing that a substantial amount of fraud
occurs in offering college education assistance, Congress passed the
College Scholarship Fraud Prevention Act of 2000. In their first
report to Congress on scholarship fraud as required by the Act, the
Federal Trade Commission and the Departments of Justice and Education
describe their efforts to combat this type of fraud."  You can read
this report. - From the Federal Trade Commission -
http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/scholarship/

Ouch! Students Getting Stung Trying to Find $$$ for College __An FTC
Consumer Alert regarding scholarship 'shopping.' -
http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/alerts/ouchalrt.htm

Next, I will provide the list of scholarship programs I currently work
with and recommend.  While they are heavily weighted toward
archaeology, anthropology and history, you will find a large number of
general scholarship programs included.  Each school and university
listing I provide also has contact information where you can check for
programs related directly to what you are looking for.  Don't let the
fact that I have listed mostly anthropology and history programs lead
you to thinking that is all they offer.  The various departments are
part of the institutions home page even if not on the page I have
linked to.  The pages I have linked to are strictly those dealing with
scholarship and awards programs and are 'not' the home pages.

You will find programs from the UK, Canada, Australia and the US.

One of these links will also take you to over 60,000 other available
scholarship programs.  I am familiar with this organization and they
will not lead you into any scams.  If you follow up just on what is
listed here, you should find a program to fit your needs.  You
realize, of course, that you will have to meet certain qualifications
for 'any' scholarship program.  So, there are no guarantees.  I can
point you to the programs, but qualifying for them is up to you.

All in all, the following list of scholarship programs leads to over
1.5 billion dollars in available student funding.

Clarification of Answer by digsalot-ga on 20 Dec 2003 07:53 PST
Correction - I stated that one of the links would lead to over
"60,000" other scholarship programs.  That should read to over
"600,000" other scholarship programs.
