What do scholarships do?

Scholarships provide financial aid to help cover the cost of education, like tuition, books, and other expenses. They can make a big difference in reducing student debt. Just be cautious of scams, legitimate scholarships won’t ask for fees or sensitive personal information upfront.

A scholarship is financial support granted to a student based on academic achievement or other criteria, which may include financial need, to support their education.

Organizations: Most of the time, scholarships from outside groups can be used at any school (you will need to check with the group to be sure). Like scholarships, grants are gifts of money that you don’t have to pay back.

Hello Amanda, Scholarships Reduce Financial Burden. Scholarships can significantly reduce the amount a student needs to borrow for college, leading to lower student loan debt after graduation.
