American undergraduate scholarship classification

Merit Based Scholarship

Outstanding achievements, including high school GPAs, class ranks, and competitive test scores for standardized exams such as GRE, GMAT, SAT, and ACT. Students will also need strong recommendation letters or application letters to prove their academic achievements.

Because of the fierce competition and the need to retain the academic achievement scholarship within the enrollment period, it is also necessary to maintain a certain degree of achievement as well as other conditions that the schools have designated.

Demand-based scholarship (Need Based Scholarship)

Most schools in the United States provide such scholarships. As long as the admission criteria are met, such scholarships depends only on family conditions. It is not related to academic performance, talent, sports performance, etc., and is equivalent to the nature of grants.
