Frequently asked questions about scholarships

Since scholarships won through are sent directly to the university you are attending, scholarship money is not considered income and therefore is not taxable.

Full-ride scholarships aren't as easy to come by, but check the scholarships through the school you are planning to attend to see what kind they give. While there are some high-value ones available on, such as the BTL Athletes Scholarship, most individual scholarships won't cover your full tuition, so the best option is to apply to many at the same time. Combining them you may be able to cover all of your college costs, but it may not be exactly like the traditional full-ride scholarship you think of.
