What is a Scholarship?
A non-repayable sum of money awarded to a student to help finance further education. Most scholarships are based on merit in areas ranging from academic to athletic achievement. Many scholarships also focus on community service, volunteerism, leadership and/or citizenship. Usually scholarships are not based on financial need.

What is a Bursary?
