Scholarships

 

Scholarships can help students and their families offset the cost of attending college. The amount a student receives in scholarship money is directly related to the amount of effort they put into researching and applying for scholarships. Franklin Towne students are eligible to receive multiple types of scholarships (listed below). Throughout the year, the FTCHS Guidance Office receives numerous scholarship opportunities from community organizations, corporations, foundations, and academic institutions. All scholarships are listed below. Students should also create profiles on scholarship search engine websites (listed under RESOURCES below). These search engines match student information to scholarships all over the web and will email students when matching scholarships are available.

There are many different types of scholarships available to students pursing all types of post-secondary education.

The most common scholarships may be classified as:

Merit-based: These awards are based on a student's academic, artistic, athletic or other abilities, and often factor in an applicant's extracurricular activities and community service record. The most common merit-based scholarships, awarded by either private organizations or directly by a student's intended college, recognize academic achievement or high scores on standardized tests. Most merit-based scholarships are paid directly by the institution the student attends, rather than issued directly to the student.

Need-based: In the United States, these awards are based on the student and family's financial record and require applicants to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to qualify if the scholarship is a federal award. Private need-based scholarships also often require the results of a FAFSA, which calculates a student's financial need through a formula that looks at the expected family contribution and cost of attendance at the intended college.

Student-specific: These are scholarships for which applicants must initially qualify based upon gender, race, religion, family and medical history, or many other student-specific factors. Minority scholarships are the most common awards in this category. For example,The Gates Millennium Scholars program is minority scholarship funded by Bill and Melinda Gates for excellent African American, American Indian, Asian Pacific Islander American and Latino students who enroll in college.

Career-specific: These are scholarships a college or university awards to students who plan to pursue a specific field of study. Often, the most generous awards to students who pursue careers in high-need areas such as education or nursing. Many schools in the United States give future nurses full scholarships to enter the field, especially if the student intends to work in a high-need community.

College-specific: College-specific scholarships are offered by individual colleges and universities to highly qualified applicants. These scholarships, given on the basis of academic and personal achievement, usually result in either a full-ride to the college, or for a reduced rate of tuition.
