Scholarships may be awarded on a one time only basis or have a renewal clause attached to them. If they are renewable, make sure you find out what the criteria is to renew them. There are two types of scholarships, institutional and private. Institutional scholarships are awarded by the college and/or university. They can be based on GPA, class rank, ACT score, or any number of other criteria. You usually complete a scholarship form when completing the admission application to the college or university. Private scholarships are awarded by companies, foundations, organizations, etc. Check with your family’s job site and any organization they are member to see if there are scholarship opportunities in their organization.
