College Scholarships

At Navigation Academy, we aim to go above and beyond other college consulting services by working with schools to identify scholarships that might be right for you.

Different types of Scholarships

There are many different types of scholarships that may be based either on merit or on financial need, though they are all considered a form of “gift aid.” If you can show exceptional academic achievement, you might pursue a merit-based scholarship. It may be an option if you have skills and interests that set you apart from other applicants. You can also get an athletic scholarship, or a scholarship for outstanding community service. There are even essay and poetry competitions out there that offer college scholarship money as a reward.

Scholarship Conditions

When you receive a scholarship, you typically don’t need to pay the money back. Many scholarship providers, though, may impose certain conditions when they offer you money. To keep your scholarship, you’ll probably have to maintain a certain grade point average. You also might need to return the money if you withdraw from school. Although scholarships do come with some caveats, they are different from loans, which require you to pay the money back over time. Unlike grants, which are also a form of gift aid, scholarships tend to be merit-based. While grants are typically distributed on the basis of financial need.

Scholarships can come from a wide variety of places.

These include scholarships from federal or state governments, your university, charitable foundations or private organizations that have a cause and some designated funds. As we help you find the best scholarships for you, we’ll also try to identify any possible conditions or restrictions of the scholarships. We will also make sure you meet the qualification criteria put forth by each scholarship.

Navigation Academy will help you locate scholarships that fit your profile.

We will go one step further by working with your school to help locate funds based on your skills and qualifications. We will also give you a comprehensive list of resources to help you locate scholarships. At Navigation Academy, we work with you as partners in the college application process. Although you will be accountable to meet deadlines, we will guide you towards suitable scholarship options.

Start looking for scholarships early.

As is the case with college testing and standard financial aid, it’s important to start looking for scholarships early on in the college application process. This will give you plenty of time to meet deadlines. We’ll make sure you’re familiar with the deadlines for the scholarships you apply for, and we will also work with you to help you meet those deadlines. Different states have different deadlines for financial aid applications, but many of the more prestigious schools have early deadlines.

Navigation Academy College Consulting Services

Navigation Academy is not your run-of-the-mill college consulting service. We do not see students as statistics to boost our company’s profile. Instead, we will work with each and every student to find the best scholarship for them. We will talk to administrative and financial aid staff at your dream school to find out what money they might have available. This includes need-based money, academic achievement or specific talents. We will make sure you feel as prepared as possible while applying for scholarships.

We know the college application process can be stressful. You have to focus on everything from assuring your GPA is the best it can be, to taking all the required standardized tests. That’s why we’re here to support and guide you through the admissions process, in order to make it as painless as possible.
