Students from low-income backgrounds are eligible for need-based scholarships. Many universities as well as private organizations offer need-based scholarships. These grants often require extensive documentation about a student’s and their family’s financial scenario, as well as the EFC result from the FAFSA. It’s also not uncommon for need-based scholarships to also entail certain academic requirements as well. You can check your desired college’s financial aid section to learn more about individual need-based scholarships.
