A scholarship is a financial award given to a student on the basis of academic achievement and promise. Many scholarships are awarded based on merit. However, some also take into account financial need. Scholarships do not have to be repaid.
Be creative when looking for scholarships, where do you like to shop, eat, spend time? Ask or go online to see if they offer a scholarship... McDonald's, Burger King, Kohl's, Coca-Cola, they all do......think about it!
