Scholarships are funds you can use to pay for higher education that does NOT have to be repaid to the provider. Scholarships may be awarded based on any number of criteria including academics, extra-curricular achievements, hobbies, talents, affiliations with various groups, or career aspirations. They are available from a variety of different sources such as the federal and state government, large corporations, local businesses, professional organizations, universities, individuals and even your Credit Union.
