Types of scholarships

While the requirements may vary, scholarships are in one of these two categories:

  • Financial need-based: When a student shows financial need for a scholarship.*
  • Academic performance-based: When a student demonstrates high academic performance that qualifies the student for scholarship.

Searching for external scholarships

The easiest way to start is to do an online search. Be thorough in your search and don’t dismiss an organization without looking at the scholarship criteria first. You never know what you might qualify for.

Most sites will ask you questions about your life, experiences, organizations, nationality and other factors to determine which scholarships apply to you.
