Hello Devin: A scholarship is an award of financial aid for a student to further their education. Scholarships are awarded based upon various criteria, which usually reflect the values and purposes of the donor or founder of the award. Scholarship money is not required to be repaid. Keep in mind that there are several types of scholarships to name a few such as:

a) Academic

b) Athletic

c) Need-based (you must demonstrate financial need, which you will be required to complete Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

d) Minorities

Here's a link to Go College where you could find very useful information on the entire college process. Make sure you reach out to your Guidance Counselor for listings of scholarships that they may be aware of; and don't forget to do your homework by researching on the web.

One last thing. Here are some links to scholarship sites to get you started.

1) Fast Web:

2) College

3) Peterson's College Search:

4) Comparative Review of Scholarships Sites: comparative review of scholarship sites
