Most scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement and financial need. Honors Program and some athletic scholarships are awarded based solely on individual criteria such as academic standing or athletic performance.
It should be noted that the selection criteria for the awards vary significantly. Among the factors which may impact upon a student's eligibility are: major course of study, grade point average, SAT scores, class rank, athletic prowess, recommendations of professors and teachers, and in some cases, geographic area.
Many of the scholarship areas require a separate application. The links provided will assist in finding a scholarship designed for you.
An external scholarship is a type of aid that is not required to be paid back. However, external scholarships vary with eligibility requirements. Some external scholarships can be found via Fastweb.com.
