One of the challenges you’re probably facing right now is figuring out how to pay for college. In addition to grants and loans, you may also be eligible for scholarships to help pay for your expenses.
Scholarships aren’t just for your school’s star athletes or people with really high grades. Awards can be need-based, meaning that they require students to demonstrate that they need financial assistance beyond what their family is able to contribute. There are also scholarships you may qualify for based on an affiliation you or your parents have, like from a religious organization you belong to, or from a nonprofit you volunteer for. Finally, you might find organizations that are interested in helping students of a particular ethnicity or other intrinsic characteristic.
