Key vocabulary

All this money talk can get confusing. Here are some key terms to help you get started.

A scholarship is a direct payment made to the student or the institution that student is attending. It is a set amount of funds awarded on the basis of academic or other achievement or financial need, along with demonstrated success and interest in specific areas defined by the scholarship. Scholarships do not need to be repaid.
