Many agencies, associations, and organizations provide money for college students. Each scholarship provider has its own application and its own rules to decide who can get its scholarship. The scholarship process requires time, work, and dedication on the part of students and parents as well as school personnel. Although many scholarships are awarded for academic success, others are given for athletic ability, extracurricular activities, specific major interests, community involvement, and citizenship. Scholarships may be granted on need basis or on a non-need basis depending upon the organization or institution granting the scholarship.
