Scholarships are awarded based on merit, need or a combination of both.
Merit-based scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, particular skills or special characteristics. Need-based aid is awarded to students who demonstrate financial need that is determined by the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Scholarship renewal criteria varies between scholarships. See our scholarship renewal criteria table or visit a particular scholarship's page on our site for more information.
