Institutional scholarships and grants are financial aid awards given by colleges and universities to help students manage tuition costs and other education-related expenses. These awards, which do not need to be repaid, can be classified as merit-based or need-based. Students who excel academically, possess unique talents, or have specific skills can be eligible for merit-based institutional scholarships. Factors such as high school performance, standardized test scores, or participation in extracurricular activities often contribute to eligibility for these scholarships. Need-based institutional grants, on the other hand, are awarded to students who demonstrate financial need. The amount given is generally based on the student’s family’s financial situation, aiming to cover the gap between the cost of attendance and the family’s capacity to pay. To assess a student’s eligibility for need-based grants, colleges and universities may rely on information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or other financial aid forms. Institutional scholarships and grants are essential for students, as they can substantially lower college expenses and make higher education more affordable.
