What to Know About Scholarships

 

A scholarship is an award of financial aid for a student to further their education at a private elementary or secondary school, or a private or public post-secondary college, university, or other academic institution.

Scholarships are awarded based upon various criteria, such as academic merit, diversity and inclusion, athletic skill, financial need, among others. Or some combination of these criteria. 

Types of Scholarships you Should Know

Merit-based: The most common merit-based scholarships, awarded by either private organizations or directly by a student’s intended college, recognize academic achievement or high scores on standardized tests.

Most such merit-based scholarships are paid directly by the institution the student attends, rather than issued directly to the student.

Need-based: Some private need-based awards are confusingly called scholarships, and require the results of a FAFSA (the family’s EFC). However, scholarships are often merit-based, while grants tend to be need-based.

Student-specific: These are scholarships for which applicants must initially qualify based upon gender, race, religion, family, medical history, or many other student-specific factors.

Minority scholarships are the most common awards in this category

Career-specific: These are scholarships a college or university awards to students who plan to pursue a specific field of study.  Often, the most generous awards to students who pursue careers in high-need areas such as education or nursing.

College-specific: College-specific scholarships are offered by individual colleges and universities to highly qualified applicants. These scholarships are given on the basis of academic and personal achievement. Some scholarships have a “bond” requirement.

Recipients may be required to work for a particular employer for a specified period of time or to work in rural or remote areas; otherwise, they may be required to repay the value of the support they received from the scholarship.

 Athletic: Awarded to students with exceptional skill in a sport. Often this is so that the student will be available to attend the school or college and play the sport on their team, although in some countries government funded sports scholarships are available, allowing scholarship holders to train for international representation.

 Brand Scholarships: These scholarships are sponsored by a corporation that is trying to gain attention to their brand, or a cause.

Sometimes these scholarships are referred to as branded scholarships. The Miss America beauty pageant is a famous example of a brand scholarship.
