What is a scholarship?

A scholarship is a sum of money provided by a generous person, family, business or organization that is awarded to a student in order to help him or her further his or her education. Unlike a student loan, scholarships are gifts that don’t need to be paid back. There are two types of scholarships at Moraine Park Technical College – Moraine Park Foundation scholarships and outside scholarships.
