A scholarship is financial aid that, unlike a loan, never has to be repaid. Scholarships are usually awarded on various criteria reflecting the values and purposes of the donor or founder of the award, and requirements to win scholarships vary as widely as the purposes of the award -- whether it honors your ancestry or your desired career.
