Merit Based Scholarships

Merit-based scholarships are awarded by taking into consideration solely the applicants’ past accomplishments in certain fields of study.

In contrast to need-based scholarships, the financial situation of the applicants and their families are not assessed during the process of application and are not influencing the awarding of the scholarships or their precise amounts.

Most colleges and universities offer this kind of scholarship, with the primary aim of identifying potential students with exceptional abilities and recognized talents, and supporting them regardless of their cultural, ethnic, religious or financial backgrounds.

The 1800wheelchair scholarship fund was established for the improvement of personal performance as seen through overcoming obstacles. The scholarship award totals to $500 and is renewable annually for the qualified candidates.
