Scholarships are financial aid awards often based on talent, academics, service, or leadership. However, need-based scholarships also exist.
You do not have to repay scholarships.
To qualify for many scholarships (especially need-based ones), you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You need to file a FAFSA every year you are in college. The priority date each year is March 10. Visit our How to Apply section for more information.
