Merit Scholarships For College Students

Jamie Said:

Which colleges offer great financial assistance to need-based students?

We Answered:

I don't think most colleges and universities consider one's ability to pay when making admission decisions. Nevertheless, when you apply for college you need to consider which schools have the resources to provide financial aid. Most public schools have some type aid for which you can apply. If you have high academic qualifications, etc., you stand a better chance to get aid than someone with lower qualifications who may not be able to pass college level work.

We Answered:

I think you are tangling two subjects/thoughts and come up with a wrong one. "Need blind" as you started out, is in regard to admissions. Then you changed to not being "need blind" in how aid is provided.

Most schools will meet 100% of a student's demonstrated need. Now, what form that aid takes (above family contribution) can vary widely - scholarships or outright grants/awards (need-based), work-study, and additionally loans as they are also considered "aid". I believe what you may be asking is for schools which give aid looking to minimize the family contribution for lower income families.

As for what you're really looking for, try googling "tuition GPA" and Princeton. Princeton Review puts out a guide to "America's Best Value Colleges" and the Tuition GPA is a metric they've come up with for the sticker price less amount of aid given. You may just want to pay the cost to buy it, as I think it is specifically what you're looking for. Here is the link to the 2008 edition on Amazon...you can get older editions for almost nothing.

Paul Said:

Which colleges are "need-blind" when choosing which students to admit?

We Answered:

Most of them are, at least the state universities and community colleges are.

Reason? Any school looking to offer admission preference to only the very wealthy (who can afford the tuition) won't stay open very long... people would be throwing shoes.

Schools have seperate admissions offices and fin aid offices. They don't talk to each other and normally don't share information unless its is very basic. Prob the best way to determine if a school is need blind is to see if they are asking for finanical aid information on the admission application.

The amount of "need based aid" you get will depend largely on the state you are in and how early you do your fafsa application. Very expensive schools usually offer more need based aid, but what you should REALLY be asking yourself is.....
"Which school can I attend taking out the least amount of student loans?"

Because if you base your decision solely on how much free money you get, you could still wind up paying a pretty penny for a private or for profit school.

Example:
A 4,000 Pell grant will go a long way at a community college costing 3,000 a year.... leaving you 1,000 to use for books, laptop, transportation costs... etc.

A 4,000 grant plus a 5,000 Institutiional grant at Private school will go only so far if the school costs 30,000 a year.

Which one is giving you more "need based aid? Well the private one of course, but you will still have to come up with the other $21,000. Many young people make this mistake, and don't seem to think things through. Remember you will be at this school for 4 years!! Making you or your folks having to borrow 21,000 X 4 = $84,000

Good Luck, hope this helps and makes you go HMMMMMM....
