Scholarships are a gift and do not need to be repaid. In other words, they are free money for college. Eligibility criteria varies based on donor specifications. Awards might cover all of your tuition, or they may be a one-time gift that helps reduce the cost of your education. You do not have to pay to find scholarships or other financial aid.
