A college education is a big investment, and scholarships are an excellent way to make your college experience more affordable. A scholarship is a type of financial aid that you don’t have to pay back.
Scholarship eligibility is based on a review of the following factors:
- Merit (academic achievement, athletic skills, leadership qualities, community service, etc.);
- Need (financial need based on your FAFSA information and other financial aid received); and/or
- Distinguishing criteria (hometown, major, ethnicity, etc.)
