Scholarships for Academic Achievement

While some scholarships are awarded based on a student’s major, others recognize academic achievement as a whole. If you have a history of academic success, you may be eligible for such a scholarship regardless of your field of study. These scholarships, also referred to as merit scholarships, usually generate a significant amount of competition among students. Many scholarships for academic achievement require students to meet a set of standards, such as a minimum GPA or a specified number of honors classes. Some scholarships may be offered based on financial need, while others may be offered based solely on academic performance. Organizations that fund scholarships for academic achievement include banks, nonprofit foundations, universities, memorial funds and others.
