A scholarship is a financial award provided to students who are entering or currently enrolled in a community college, university, or a graduate degree program. While all scholarships are unique, generally these opportunities:
  • Do not need to be repaid
  • Are awarded based on merit or need, or a combination of both
  • Are provided by a college, community organization, corporation or individual
  • Require students to use the financial award for the pursuit of an academic degree
Scholarships reduce the total cost of college attendance by covering tuition, fees, equipment and other educational related expenses. Some scholarships also offer an internship or mentoring components.
