WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
Loans, scholarships, and grants are the three leading methods of funding an education. Learn more about the differences between scholarships, grants and loans to determine the right combination for you. LOAN
Student loans are borrowed funds which you (or your parents or guardians) are obligated to pay back over a certain agreed-upon period, with interest. SCHOLARSHIP
Scholarships are a form of financial aid that do not have to be repaid. Scholarships are granted based on a variety of criteria, including academic merit, athletic involvement, extracurricular activities, essays, ethnicity, and financial need. GRANT
Grants are monetary awards that, like scholarships, do not need to be repaid. Grants are funded by federal and state governments.
