A scholarship is a form of financial aid that does not need to be repaid. Scholarship eligibility may be need-based (as determined by the FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or merit-based. You're encouraged to apply for scholarships as part of your financial aid plan. View our list of scholarships (subject to change).
