Scholarships are an excellent way to help cover the expenses of attending college and are generally a form of a "gift aid" and do not have to be repaid although some may have certain terms for accepting. Always make sure you read the terms and conditions before accepting a scholarship.
Scholarships can be offered by governments, colleges and private, outside sources. Eligibility for scholarships can be based upon financial need, merit, athletics, unique specific criteria, or a combination of any listed.
