Scholarships

Many schools offer both need-based scholarships and merit-based scholarships to students. To be eligible for a need-based scholarship, you will have to fill out a FAFSA form. Be sure to ask schools about any scholarships, grants, or tuition assistance programs that may be offered to accepted students.

In addition to school-sponsored scholarships, you’ll find many scholarships that are offered by third parties (i.e., organizations unaffiliated with a specific school or educational program).
