Scholarships matter. According to US News and World Report, there are several reasons why scholarship support is important to the workforce of tomorrow:
 
1. College costs a lot more than it used to. According to a 2010 Trends in College Pricing report by College Board, since the year 2000, public four-year tuition and fees have increased more than 5 percent annually above inflation. Tuition at public two-year colleges and private four-year colleges also increased by 3 percent above inflation.
 
2. The economy has not fully rebounded, and parents savings might be limited. 
 
3. The cost of college living is up. 
 
4. State support for students has decreased substantially.
