SECTION 1



SCHOLARSHIP





A Scholarship is the pursuit of academic
research, whether in the arts and the
humanities or sciences, and in all such
fields means deep mastery of a subject,
often through study at institutions of
higher education.

A scholarship is also an award of access
to such an institution, or a financial
aid award for an individual student
scholar, for the purpose of furthering
their education.

Scholarships are awarded based on a range
of criteria which usually reflect the
values and purposes of the donor or the
founder of the award.

SECTION 2



TYPES
OF
SCHOLARSHIP




Scholarships may be
classified into the
following primary
groups.



Merit-based:
financial aid for which financial
need is not used to determine the
recipient.

The recipient may be determined
by students’ athletic, academic,
artistic or other abilities.

The actual monetary value of the
scholarship may be negligible,
the scholarship being meant to
motivate the student and promote
the study of the subject.

However, this is not always the
case and the largest scholarships
are almost always merit-based.



Athletic:
In the U.S. and other countries
athletes who perform well in
various athletic endeavors are
offered athletic scholarships.



Need-based:
financial aid for which the student
and family’s financial situation is
a primary factor in determining the
recipient.

Usually such scholarship will cover
all or part of the tuition and may
even cover living-costs.

Very often even need-based private
scholarships require the awardees
to be distinguished students, as
the deed founding the award may
include a phrase like: “for the
studies of the founder's favourite
subject in the founder's favourite
institution of higher education for
a talented youths of limited means
from the founder's home
town/county/state etc.“



Ethnicity-based:
financial aid where applicants must
initially qualify by race, religion,
or national origin. After filtering
the applicants based on their ethnicity,
additional factors are taken into
consideration to determine the final
recipients.



Institutional-based:
scholarships awarded by a specific
college or university (institution)
to a student planning to attend that
institution.



General:
Other scholarships which are awarded
for a variety of reasons which do not
fall into one of the above categories.

These may be for reasons of the student's
association with the objectives of the
sponsoring organization.

For example, some corporations give
scholarships to their employees'
children.

STUDENT
FINANCIAL
AID




Student financial aid refers to
funding intended to help students
pay tuition or other costs, such
as room and board, for education
at a college, university, or
private school.

General governmental funding for
public education is not called
financial aid, which refers to
awards to specific individual
students.

A scholarship is sometimes used
as a synonym for a financial aid
award.
