Colleges and universities offer institutional scholarships and grants as financial assistance to help students cover tuition fees and other educational costs. These awards, which do not require repayment, can be merit-based or need-based. Merit-based institutional scholarships recognize students who have exceptional academic records, special talents, or skills in particular areas. Eligibility for these scholarships often depends on factors such as a student’s high school performance, standardized test scores, or involvement in extracurricular activities. In contrast, need-based institutional grants are designed for students who show financial need. The amount awarded usually depends on the student’s family’s financial condition and aims.
