College Scholarship Information

You're in the right place for valuable college scholarship information. Whereas grants are based on financial need, scholarships are typically awarded on the basis of merit, i.e., excellence in academics, athletics, performing arts, etc. In most cases, there are conditions, including a high GPA, that must be met in order for a student to receive and keep their scholarship. It's critical to remember that each year there are billions of dollars (yes, billions) awarded as academic scholarships. And the rat race to receive this money is extremely competitive. Therefore, higher GPA and SAT scores increase the student's chances of receiving a scholarship. Look through our scholarships directory to learn about the wide range of available scholarships.

Full Ride Scholarship vs Full Tuition Scholarship

  • Full ride scholarship: We’ve all heard people complain over the years, “why does the grant and scholarship process have to be so damn confusing?” In order to gain clarity in this beyond confusing process - you would first need to know the difference between a full ride scholarship and a full tuition scholarship. To be concise, a full ride scholarship will cover the entire cost of the student’s higher education needs. Needs such as the cost of tuition, room and board, school materials, textbooks and in certain situations, in particular the ROTC program - in most instances, the student will also receive a monthly stipend that increases significantly between freshman year until the student’s senior year. In regards to said scholarships the federal government, colleges, private institutions, and foundations are typically the main sources for the gifting of the said scholarships.
  • Full tuition scholarship: This particular scholarship will only cover the tuition. Let me repeat - the only thing this scholarship is obligated to cover is the cost of tuition. Nothing else! However, you may be able to squeeze a few necessities in such as books, room and board - but it won’t come close when comparing to a full ride scholarship as it pertains to the multitude of necessities that are covered via a full ride scholarship.

At the end of the day, if a full tuition scholarship is the best that your soon to be college freshman can get, it’s better than nothing. The full tuition scholarship will lessen the financial burden on you, the parent/parents, in the event that you may find yourself having to take out a loan to cover the remaining cost. Trust me, if your child keeps up a decent GPA and SAT score, you should definitely be able to find additional money to supplement other costs.
