College Scholarships

varies – varies (Deadline: 12/31/2017)

College scholarships come in many forms, ranging from awards based on academic or athletic performance to those intended for members of minority groups, such as African Americans or members of the LGBTQ community. Many people use the terms “scholarship” and “grant” interchangeably, due to the fact that neither requires repayment. However, there are differences between the two. Grants usually come from the state or federal government and are largely awarded on need (scholarships awards are generally merit-based). Read on to learn more about finding and applying to credible scholarship programs.
