College Scholarships

COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION

There are basically two types of aid – Merit based and Need based. Merit is awarded based on academics, activities, test scores etc. Need Based is awarded to students who demonstrate they need financial assistance. Keep in mind that many colleges will want you to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) regardless of whether or not you believe you will qualify for need based aid. For additional information on Financial Aid see click the Financial Aid link.
