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 who have identified a special need, skill or hobby or an affiliation with a club or group.
