Good grades and high test scores still matter — a lot — to many colleges as they award financial aid.
Merit scholarship awards are often based upon some demonstrated talent such as athletic, artistic, or academic. During the 2005-06 academic year, 310 National Association of Independent Schools member schools offered $25.7 million in merit awards with the average award being $3,545.
If you think your child may qualify for a merit award, it is important that you check with the school about the particulars of their merit award program.
Fewer than 5 percent of enrolled students received merit-based financial aid.
While most schools offer need-based aid, some schools also offer special scholarships based on criteria other than economic circumstances. Examples of non-need-based awards are merit scholarships and sibling discounts.
Sibling discounts are a lesser-used option and depend upon the number of children enrolled within the same school. These discounts may not be very large, but be sure to see if the schools you are considering offer such a program. For more information, Click Here
