- A full-ride scholarship is a college’s largest recruitment tool used to entice top-performing students who might otherwise enroll elsewhere. For that reason, full-ride scholarships become less common the more selective an institution is. In short, if there is no shortage of applicants dying to get in and willing to pay full price, there is likely to be a shortage of scholarships.
- Students looking for a full scholarship should consider schools that will be no problem for them to get into—colleges where they are not just meeting, but (frequently by a lot), their entrance requirements.
- These colleges often compete with more well-known names to attract top students, and, if you are a top student, that competition can work in your favor.
