There are government scholarships that help people attend college. This is a way that people can get an education that may have been impossible due to financial hardships. Scholarships have different types, though most available scholarships are need-based and the merit-based scholarship.

Need-based scholarship is determined with a student's family's ability to pay for a college degree. While merit-based scholarship are awarded to an individual based on his accomplishments from academic, athletic, artistic or other categories.

College is not just a way to get a career, but you are exposed to different subjects than in high school as well as lots of interactions with other students. It is an education in so many ways and quite valuable aside from the job opportunities. Many people find their closest friends in college and it is a wonderful avenue for testing out courses as well.

However without funding a lot of people fail to continue their education because of the extremely high cost of college tuition. There are government funds that offers certain scholarships for low- income, minorities, and families who have a parent away at war.
