What is a scholarship?
A scholarship is an award of financial aid for a student to further his/her 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. Scholarships are a major component of financial aid for many college students.
In Washington state students receive in excess of $50 million annually in scholarships. Scholarships are awarded based on a variety of factors. Students may qualify for an award because of their familial background, choice of college/university, high school attended, geographic region, and more. Once qualified, students are reviewed based on one or more of the following: financial need, scholastic aptitude & effort, leadership, community service, athletics, commitment, goals, and much, much more.
