This directory makes it easy to search for scholarships based on how much money they award. What makes one scholarship bigger than the other? It's up to the individual provider, whether they be a private organization, a college or university, or a government agency, for example, to set the maximum amount awarded per scholarship.
Some scholarships are a single payment towards your college tuition. Others may be recurring payments over the course of your undergraduate career as long as you meet certain academic objectives each semester. The most coveted of scholarships are those that offer complete tuition assistance – AKA a free ride to a college or university, where you'll have your tuition covered in full! Whether you choose to apply to a few large-amount scholarships or apply to many smaller-amount scholarships, you'll be giving yourself the chance to win money towards your college tuition.
