What is a scholarship?
These are the questions students, parents and others need to know about scholarships and student aid.

“You can search by the types of scholarships you receive, and then we’ll help you figure out what your best choice is,” Mazzucci said.
The app will let you search by type of scholarship, the number of scholarships it offers and the average amount you need to pay out.
For example, you can search for scholarships for children, parents, or students who live at home.
If you search for student loans, you’ll be able to see how much you’ll need to repay.
You’ll also be able choose between paying your loans off, paying off the balance, or paying interest.
The first few scholarships are offered to students who attend college.
“Some students are able to access scholarships through their parents or guardians, while others can receive a scholarship through their college,” said the app’s co-creator, Christina Toth.
“As with all our other student aid products, we’ve made the process a little easier for you to navigate.”
To start the search, select “Student Loans” or “College Scholarships” and then click the “Search” button at the top of the screen.
Toth said the search screen is designed to be as easy as possible.
It’s designed to provide the user with an overview of the scholarships and the various types of grants that are available.
You can also select “Help” for additional assistance.
“We hope this will be a useful tool for people to find the best scholarship,” Toth said.
“It’s definitely a new thing to be able do this,” said student scholarship program director and app developer Kori Schramm.
“I’m so excited to see what people are finding, and to see all the scholarships that are out there.”
