Scholarships, like grants, do not need to be repaid. Scholarships can be based on academic performance, financial need, religious affiliation, and/or minority status. When applying for scholarships, think about what you have to offer that is unique - what makes you different - and find a group that values that difference. Read the requirements carefully. Do not waste your time applying for scholarships for which you are not qualified.
