Hot Tip: You’ll notice as you conduct your search that each subcategory of scholarships list how many awards are available and the total amount of money awarded in that area. Statistically speaking, the more awards and money available, the less competitive the scholarship. If you have a limited amount of time to search and apply for scholarships—and can keep an honest account of your competitiveness in mind—begin by applying for the scholarships you seem most likely to win.
Applicants must be full-time undergraduate students attending a four-year accredited college or university that offers courses leading to a degree in science or engineering. Applicants must be within two (2) years of earning a B.S. or a B.A. in a field of science and engineering, including life science and science education by the time the award is received. Scholarship awards are made in the fall, with applications accepted during the summer.
Federal and State Governments commonly fund student grant programs, which are typically awarded based on a series of metrics that includes economic need, ability to pay, student status and academic achievements. Though your level of need is considered, grant awards are not exclusively based on your family’s income. In fact, two general types of grant programs stand out for college students Need-based grants and Merit-based grants.

I am writing on behalf of my granddaughter, Desiree for grants that she may be entitled to. Desiree has been accepted to all of the colleges that she has applied for in NYC. She really wants to attend the New School (in NYC) and the only way she will be able to do so is by applying for grants and/or scholarships. She lives with her Mom (Single Mom) who is barely making ends meet. She would qualify for Hispanic and/or Mixed-Race (we can trace back our roots from her paternal side to an Indian tribe from Virgina.) She wants to major in the medical field specializing in Psychology. Any assistance to put us in the right direction is greatly appreciated and welcomed.

College grants are primarily awards of free money, that do not require any repayment on the part of the recipient. They can be directed toward specific educational expenses, specific types of students, or general purpose. Unlike scholarships, which are typically awarded on the basis of academic achievement or athletic, artistic or extracurricular performance, grants are awarded according to financial need. This is not to say that academic merit will not be considered, only that financial need is given greater weight in the final decision making process.
Soon-to-be students can qualify for free scholarships across a range of parameters. Merit—or a student’s academic or subject-specific achievement—is one popular measure. Another is a student’s athleticism or talent in a particular extracurricular activity such as music or art. Still other parameters include applicants’ intended majors, levels of community service, residencies in a particular state, minority statuses, and other qualifications.
The Academic Competitiveness Grant is available to students who have already qualified for the Pell grant.

The ACG is open to students majoring in a critical need area, such as math, science, technology, engineering and foreign languages.
I am 19 and the oldest out of my four brothers and sisters and my family will be struggling to pay for my Rutgers tuition in the fall of this year. Although I was accepted into good colleges my senior year of high school, I had to stay home for two years at a community college to ease the burdens of tuition costs for my family. Support at home was further needed when my mom went into surgery for her cancerous brain tumor and she was out of work for over a year. Rather than spending my time home being lazy and depending on others, I have been proactive in competitive fencing, volunteering at my local courthouse, clubs at school and graduating with honors with a 3.7 GPA. It is very difficult to find money for transfer students, but I would be grateful if any help were to come my way.
Most colleges will have funding available to assist low-income students. The first step in applying for these grants is filling out a FAFSA to determine financial need. Grants can also be awarded based on merit, field of study, or student-specific criteria. Athletic grants supplement sports scholarships to draw the most talented athletes to a college, and require both a minimum GPA and high-level sports talent. Funding is usually supported by endowments so funding levels for college-based grants vary year to year. Contact your intended college or start with a college search to find out more about college-based grants.
