Scholarship: A scholarship is generally an amount paid or allowed to a student at an educational institution for the purpose of study. Scholarships are usually merit-based (based on your academic or athletic talent, or on your interest in a specific subject or career), or for financial need. Scholarships do not have to be paid back. All scholarships have firm application deadlines. Most have certain criteria you need to meet. Important to note: if you receive scholarships outside of your school's financial aid package, it may reduce your financial aid.
Grant: A grant is a sum of money given by an organization, especially a government, state or college, for a particular purpose. Grants do not have to be paid back (unless you default on your contract). Many grants are based on need, that is, they are based on your or your family's financial circumstances.
Fellowship: A fellowship is a type of grant and is generally an amount paid or allowed to an individual for the purpose of study or research (or in exchange for a prescribed purpose). Fellowships often support post-graduate projects which may be pursued outside the normal curriculum. Typically, funding is provided by a foundation, institution or other organization to support academic work, research, independent projects or community service activity. Some popular fellowships are: Fulbright, Rhodes, Marshall, and Truman.
