Colleges and universities have their own scholarships to award. Visit our college websites page for links to colleges. Many universities offer Automatic “Merit” Scholarships based on a first year student’s ACT score, GPA, and/or Class Rank.
In addition, many Automatic “Merit” Scholarships are renewable as long as you maintain a certain GPA, and there is typically little or no paperwork necessary for these scholarships.
NATIONAL AID & SCHOLARSHIPS
Thousands of national scholarships are available to students. Many of these scholarships go unclaimed every year because no one applies for them.
