The merit-based scholarships are offered by many federal and state governments, local businesses, professional organizations, large corporations, universities, social and religous organizations. These are usually based on academic merit. However, there are also many peculiar scholarships offered to students with exceptional skills, extracurricular achievements and interests. For example, sports-based scholarships are given to students who have proven records of excellence in any particular sport. The student need not enroll in a sports-based course to avail such scholarship. Our counselors help you identify your skills and accentuate them in your scholarship application.
Need-based Scholarships (Grants)
Many organizations and universities provide need based aid to academically eligible students coming from monetarily underprivileged backgrounds. These scholarships tend to be highly competitive for which the students have to demonstrate their financial need through factors like assets and income of the student and his/her family. If you have such financial need, our counselors help you to identify universities having lower tuition fees, generous financial aid or a combination of both.
