Scholarships are a great way to help students pay for college without having to incur additional debt. Scholarships can come from any organization such as a church, business, fraternity/sorority, government, etc. Be wary of scholarships that require some form of payment; this is not generally within the spirit of scholarship giving and is not recommended by the Office of Financial Aid.

Common types of scholarships are merit-based scholarships, but there are also scholarships that are based on financial need, and/or extracurricular activities. There are also scholarships that are based on volunteer work.
