Scholarship Information

For colleges and universities, scholarships are financial aid awards designed to help students pay for an undergraduate degree. Sometimes a scholarship is a one-time check. Other school scholarships are renewable and provide money for students each semester or school year. There are basically two types of scholarships—merit scholarships and private scholarships.
