Scholarships typically fall into three major categories:
- Merit: Based on student's academic, artistic, volunteer, leadership, community service or other forms of extra-curricular activity.
- Need: Based on students who require, and can demonstrate financial need.
- Student Specific: For students from minority groups, or who have identified a special need, a specific skill or an affiliation or hobby.
Keep your marks, athletics, leadership and volunteer work at an outstanding level and stay positive. Give references enough time and information to write great reference letters. You know you are awesome, believe in yourself!
