Scholarships for college are often available in the Senior year. There are different types of scholarships: merit and need-based scholarships from individual colleges, community organizations, and/or companies. Merit-based scholarship means family income is not a criteria. Need-based scholarship means the applicant’s family has demonstrated a financial need. Every scholarship has its own eligibility criteria. As long as students meet the eligibility, they can apply for these scholarships. Often times, scholarship applications require completion of an application, official transcript from high school, an essay, and recommendation letters.
