Institutional scholarships and grants refer to financial aid provided directly by a college or university to support students in covering their educational expenses. These awards can be either merit-based or need-based and do not require repayment. Merit-based institutional scholarships reward students who have demonstrated exceptional academic achievements, talents, or skills in specific areas. Such scholarships often take into account a student’s high school performance, standardized test scores, or extracurricular activities. On the other hand, need-based institutional grants are allocated to students who exhibit financial need. The amount awarded is usually determined by the student’s family’s financial circumstances and aims to cover the difference between the cost of attendance and the family’s capacity to pay. To assess eligibility for need-based grants, colleges and universities may use information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or other financial aid forms. Institutional scholarships and grants play a crucial role in assisting students, as they can considerably lower the cost of college and make higher education more attainable.
