It can be difficult to know the difference between merit based and need based scholarships. Essentially, merit based scholarships are typically given to students who are academically strong and/or demonstrate high ACT/SAT scores. Need based scholarships are given based on a student's families financial situation and often given to student who show strength in academics as well (but not always needing to be at the top of their class; however, will need to meet the designated GPA and ACT/SAT score entry requirements). College specific scholarships are considered based on the application a student submits (that allows the college to see transcrips, extra curricular activities, any leadership activities, sports, ect.) as well as the FASFA form that a student and parent complete. One of the many sought after colleges in Washington is UW. I will give you an example of how a college considers giving tuition assistance to students.
