There are two different types of scholarships one is the general one which is determined by a formula and how much money is contributed to schools. It is based on income, assets, age, number of members in a family and not everyone qualifies for scholarships. The other type of scholarship is the Merit scholarship and is based on 3 things: community service in the school such as how many hours are done from a student, the student’s GPA and the SAT score.
