Scholarships provide money for college based on merit—such as one's GPA or SAT/ACT score—or a combination of factors, including merit, extracurricular activities, and financial need.
Talk to your student's high school guidance counselor to discuss applying for scholarships. Some scholarships are available from the State of Maryland; others are available directly from the university to which your student applies. Still others are made available to qualified students by private organizations such as civic associations, clubs, churches, and businesses.
