  Merit-Based Aid
Financial aid awarded to students based on their merit or academic achievements is called Merit-Based Aid (non-need based aid). Merit-based aid does not require students to demonstrate financial need. This type of aid is awarded in the form of scholarships, grants, and fellowships. Inquire about Merit-Based Aid at the schools you are interested in attending and your state education agencies.

Merit-based aid is usually awarded based on one or more of the following:
Test Scores (i.e. ACT, SAT, GMAT, etc.)
Field of Study (i.e. Teacher, Flight Training, Medicine, etc.)
Enrollment at a Specific School
Geographic Area (i.e. City, Region, District, County, etc.)
Leadership Abilities
Disability Impairments (i.e. Blindness, Hearing Impairment, etc.)
Athletic Talents
Ethnicity (i.e. Ethnic or Racial Background)
Religious Affiliation
Artist Talents (i.e. Musician, Dancing, etc.)
Graduate/Professional Studies
