Scholarships can be seen as getting free money for school but in the United States it usually means for college. Scholarships are awards and grants given to students pursuing a higher education who needs a little help paying for college. I know I did when I first started out. Scholarships are given based on certain criteria whether it’s academics, athletics, or anything else. It just focuses on a specialty and helps the person with a little extra boost.
I have gotten several scholarships for excellence in academics and I am very thankful for that. Without scholarships I probably wouldn’t be able to go to the expensive college that I attend at this time. I have done a lot of research and only a few sites were able to help me out, one including Scholarship.com. They give you information on different types of scholarships and list how much money you can get out of it. They also list information on government grants that you can get. Why would you question free money? Just go for it if you think you have a shot because you really have nothing to lose except time to fill out the application and give them what they require. Good luck to all those college bound students, hopefully you can get as many scholarships as I’ve gotten.
