There are many scholarships provided by governments and educational institutions to aid you financially. The different types of scholarships include:
- Fellowships or Merit-based scholarships
- Academic scholarships
- Grants or Need-based scholarships
- University scholarships
- Government-funded scholarships
- Program-based scholarships
- Athletic scholarships
- Specific scholarships based on your ethnic background or community.
Grants can be acquired from various sources, and one of the most significant advantages is that you do not have to repay the amount except under certain circumstances. The most popular out of all the grants is the Federal Pell grant.
The pell is usually offered to undergraduate students from low-income families who have not completed their bachelor’s degree. However, the amount you get depends on your financial need, cost of attendance, and your status as a student.
