Scholarships

A scholarship is a sum of money granted to a student to help further their education.

Scholarships come from various sources like a school, organization, or other private source. Every scholarship has specific requirements and deadlines that have to be met to qualify. Here are a few examples:

  • Merit scholarships are based on the student’s achievements in various areas like athletics and academic interests, to name a few.
  • School scholarships are given to students by the school they attend. They can be associated with a specific field of study or students interests at that institution.
  • Work scholarships require a student to earn their award by working.
  • Field of Study scholarships are awarded to students who are pursuing a specific field of study.
  • Need scholarships are based on the student meeting specific financial need criteria. Some scholarship competitions use a Federal Financial Need formula.
  • Student-Specific scholarships can be based on a student’s nationality, gender, race, religion, medical history and other student-specific factors.
