What is a Scholarship?

A scholarship is money given to you to help pay for your education or related expenses. Scholarships come from a variety of sources, such as your college or a private organization.

Examples of types of scholarships:

  • Merit scholarships are based on a student's achievements.
  • School scholarships are given to students by the school they attend.
  • Work scholarships require students to work to receive scholarship money.
  • Field of Study scholarships are given to students pursuing a specific field of study or academic program.
  • Need scholarships are based on financial need.
  • Student-specific scholarships can be based on a student's nationality, gender, race, religion, medical history, and so on.

Time Sensitive Scholarships

We encourage you to do your own research to find other scholarship opportunities. Remember that you should never have to pay for a scholarship. Any scholarship that costs you money is probably a scam.
