Scholarships should not be given to specific students for exceeding certain expectations. Rather, scholarships should be given based on certain guidelines. A student should be given a certain amount of scholarship based on his or her family's financial background. In addition, and more importantly, high schools should implement a Portfolio Program. In this, each student should be required to make a portfolio that demonstrates his or her strengths and weaknesses, accomplishments and failures. In senior year, the amount of scholarship money for seniors should be dependent on the quality of their portfolios.
