Scholarships are gifts. They don't need to be repaid. There are hundreds of them offered by schools, employers, individuals, private companies, nonprofits, communities, religious groups, and professional and social organizations.
A scholarship might cover the entire cost of your tuition, or it might be a one-time award of a few hundred dollars. Either way, it's worth applying for because it will help reduce the cost of your education.
Each scholarship has its own requirements. The scholarship's criteria should give you an idea of who qualifies for the scholarship and how to apply. Make sure you read the application carefully, fill it out completely and meet the application deadline.
Find and apply for as many scholarships as you can - it's free money for college or career school!
