What is a scholarship?
A scholarship is a type of financial aid awarded to students to further their education. It is awarded on various criteria based on the values and purpose of the donor or founder of the award. Scholarships do not need to be repaid. Many scholarships will require students to first fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).Free Money Goes Fast! Apply for your FAFSA today!
