A college scholarship is a monetary award based on criteria given by the awarding party. It can be given on the basis of academic merit, athletic ability, financial need or other criteria specific to the group giving the award. Educational grants and scholarships are the best kind of financial aid, for one simple reason: it is free money.

To make your journey to college a little easier, the Commission on Equity and Opportunity compiles a listing of available scholarships and resources. The book contains a brief description of each scholarship along with contact information and/or links that will direct you to the actual scholarship and application.
