Both scholarships and grants for college are free money to help you pay for your education. Unlike student loans, you don't have to pay back college grants or scholarships, except under certain circumstances, like withdrawing early from a program or a change in your enrollment status.footnote 1

The biggest difference between college grants and scholarships is that grants for college are typically need-based. Scholarships may be need-based or merit-based, which means they're given out based on some kind of ability, hobby, ethnicity, religion, etc.

Generally, your school will pay out your grant money in at least two payments called disbursements. Typically, the college applies your grant money toward your tuition, fees, and (if you live on campus) room and board. Any money left over is paid to you for other expenses.footnote 2

There are college grants available to international students. Grant programs and financial aid for international students are not as abundant as those for domestic students. However, there is still a variety of grants for college dedicated specifically to supporting international students.

After you've submitted your FAFSA, start looking into grants and scholarships. Sometimes referred to as 'gift-aid', grants and scholarships are types of financial aid that you typically do not have to repay. They are provided by the federal government, state government, colleges, and private organizations.

While the terms grants and scholarships are often used interchangeably, there is usually a difference between the two. Most grants tend to be need-based and are usually awarded based on you or your family's financial situation. Most scholarships tend to be merit-based and are usually awarded based on academic or athletic abilities. Some organizations will offer scholarships that are need-based, so check the requirements of each scholarship and grant during the application process.

Applying for scholarships is a lot like applying to college. The application process can include many of the same tasks. Make sure to keep essays, letters of recommendation, transcripts, and other important information handy. If you're unsure of your eligibility for a particular scholarship, contact the sponsor with questions.

Federal grants can be awarded to undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, or graduate students. Most are only awarded to students who have a financial need. Check out these federal grant programs to see if you are eligible.

These grants are awarded to undergraduate students who show exceptional financial need. They are administered by the financial aid offices of each participating college.

For children of parents and guardians that died as a result of military service in Iraq or Afghanistan after 9/11. Participants must be under 24 or enrolled in college at least part-time at the time of their parent or guardian's death. Participants will need to complete the FAFSA form every year they are in school to remain eligible.

State government-funded grants use the FAFSA to help determine your specific financial needs. They are good for helping to fill any gaps that remain after federal assistance aid. Completing your FAFSA will also check for these NC state grants and scholarships.

A great first place to look is your college's financial aid office. Contact them to see what scholarship options they have that fit your needs. You can also ask your high school counselor. Check your local community as well by contacting local civic groups, businesses, religious groups, non-profit organizations, professional associations, and others.

After exhausting all opportunities for scholarships and grants, you may consider student loans. You may apply for a federal student loan by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If after exhausting your federal student loan options you find that you still have a college funding gap, you may consider a private loan to make up the difference. 041b061a72
