Significance of Scholarship:
A scholarship is generally an amount paid or allowed to, or for the benefit of, a student at an educational institution to aid in the pursuit of studies. The student may be either an undergraduate or a graduate. Scholarships have manifold benefits for the students and the authority part as well. Getting scholarships really encourage students to smoothen his/her education life. It isn't much of a secret that the costs of education have continued to rise every year. This has made it harder for students from low income families attend higher education, and some have even went as far as to say that this has caused a larger wealth gap in society, since those who are educated have a tendency to get better paying jobs. Since the financial aid they may be given is not enough to pay for even 100% of their tuition, some of these students may be forced to be dropped out. Even if the student can finish study, the "school work dilemma" would put them in a situation where it takes longer for them to get their degree compared to a student who can pay for their classes up front without having to work a day job. Another powerful advantage of scholarships is their prestige. Because most scholarships require students to maintain good grades in order to keep them, it takes a great deal of responsibility to use them effectively.
