Every university in the United States has its own scholarship schemes and application process. The amount of financial assistance varies greatly, and each university or college has its own criteria for awarding scholarships and the amount of aid that will be given. The only way to find out about the scholarships available and the eligibility for them is to visit the websites of the universities/colleges. Make a list of the places you would like to study and visit the websites to get information on what assistance is available and how to apply.
There are some scholarships that are available purely on the SAT scores. What follows is a list of a few of them. Please note that this is not a comprehensive list. Additionally, because policies and procedures for scholarships are subject to regular revisions by the organizations and institutions that offer them, getting up to date information directly from the organization is important.
