Scholarships are merit-based awards that are given for a variety of factors based on a student's skills, abilities or interests. You could win one for your grades, the extracurriculars you were involved in during high school, community service you're involved in, for your gender or cultural background, or for a characteristic as random as how tall you are.

Scholarship Info

Grants are awarded by the U.S. government based on financial need. Financial need is typically calculated by finding the difference between the cost of attendance at school and the contribution the student's family is expected to be able to provide. Grants can also be given by the state government, a college or career school or a nonprofit organization.

Grant Info

A loan, in its simplest definition is money that is borrowed by a party and is expected to be repaid with interest. Colleges, banks and even the government have the choice to loan money to students at their discretion and terms. So while you may be able to attend college, it comes with a cost, and then some.
