SIN in Scholarships

A photo of thebrain786 thebrain786
I was wondering if someone could help me. I've found a lot of scholarships but they're asking for my social insurance number. A couple of them are online applications and they're asking for it too. I've always been told not to give it out so I was just wondering whether or not to apply for some of these or how I should apply.

who said don't give out your sin? it's obviously not 100% safe but I've never heard of any scholarships where you have to apply online having some weird virus..it should be fine, I've used my sin several times. *knock on wood*

As a base check: try to verify if it is a legit scholarship in some way or another. The last thing you want is getting screwed over because of imprudence.
