Scholarships for College: What they are and why you should apply

Simply put, scholarships are a form of financial aid that does not have to be repaid. Usually, a scholarship is awarded to students based on an academic merit or need-based criteria.

Academic or merit-based scholarships typically reward students for their past educational success. Did you graduate from high school with honors or a high GPA? Then you may qualify for a merit-based scholarship.

Need-based scholarships are awarded to students who meet certain income requirements. These types of scholarships are available to students who may not be able to afford a college education. Do you need help paying for college? Then keep an eye out for need-based scholarships and see if you can meet the requirements.

Career Ready scholarships are awarded to students who meet certain employment requirements.

If you’re thinking about college, Remington College encourages you to look for scholarship opportunities such as state sponsored programs, as well as those that may be available from the college you’re considering. Scholarship programs are intended to make college more affordable and help cover living expenses while you are in college.

Getting Started

Sometimes the thought of applying for financial aid and doing the paperwork can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be! You’re not alone in this process. Remington College’s Student Finance Department is ready to help you determine your eligibility and start your application for specific financial aid opportunities.(1)

What Are Some Financial Aid Options?

Financial aid comes in many variations depending on needs, merit, circumstances, restrictions, and/or qualifications.

  • Grants are funds that often do not have to be paid back; they’re usually awarded based on need, and sometimes on merit.
  • Scholarships do not have to be repaid. These funds are awarded based on academic achievement or need, or a combination of both.
  • Student loans, both private and federal, are funds that students borrow. These funds have to be paid back, with interest.
  • Federal Parent Plus Loan- This loan is for eligible parents of dependent students. The parent borrower must pass a credit check. The parent may borrow up to the cost of attendance, minus all other aid.

Financial Aid 101

Here’s how the process generally works:

First, you need to apply for your FAFSA access PIN. Once you have your PIN number you are ready to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). It is filled out online and a Remington College Student Finance Associate can assist you with the application process if needed.

After you’ve submitted the application, we may ask you for additional information to complete your financial aid file. Financial aid applications often involve deadlines, so it is important for you to stay on top of those.

Based on the FAFSA and the other information you provide, Remington College will create a financial aid estimate, called an Estimated Award Letter. The Estimated Award Letter contains a description of the types and amount of aid that you may be eligible to receive.(1)

At this point, if you are applying for loans you may need to submit a loan application. The application information will be included with your financial aid package. If you are pursuing privately funded grants and scholarships make sure to review all of their instructions and eligibility requirements carefully as they often have specific conditions to receive their funds.

Qualifying for financial aid is a step-by-step process, but you will find it to be worth your while. Contact your Campus’ Student Finance Department today to learn more about funding your college education.

Net Price Calculator

Every educational institution, in accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), must post a net price calculator on its website. It is intended to help you understand the costs of attending Remington College and what financial aid you may be eligible to receive if you qualify.

You will need to answer a series of questions, including questions about your financial situation.

Please remember that some of the questions are optional and are marked as such. This calculator only provides an estimate.
