Financial awards given by a college or university to its students, known as institutional scholarships and grants, help to offset the cost of tuition and other education-related expenses. These awards fall into two categories: merit-based and need-based, and they do not need to be paid back. Merit-based institutional scholarships are granted to students who have shown outstanding academic accomplishments, special talents, or abilities in a particular field. Factors such as high school performance, standardized test results, or involvement in extracurricular activities often contribute to these scholarship decisions. Conversely, need-based institutional grants cater to students who demonstrate financial need. The awarded amount is typically based on the student’s family’s financial standing and is intended to cover the difference between the cost of attendance and the family’s ability to contribute. Colleges and universities might use data from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or other financial aid forms to determine a student’s eligibility for need-based grants. Institutional scholarships and grants are a vital source of financial support for students, as they can significantly reduce the cost of attending college and help make higher education more accessible.
