The term "scholarship" can have many meanings. At its most basic, a scholarship is money for college that you will not be expected to repay. They are worth seeking!
Scholarships sponsored by colleges are often designated for students who fit a particular profile (from the college's home state, holding a specified grade average, enrolling in a particular major, or bringing special talent in athletics, music, and the like).
Other outside scholarships may be available to students whose parents work for a particular company or to students who are eligible for scholarships sponsored by church or civic organizations.
You will need to check with each college to see what scholarships are available. You should also become familiar with any scholarships available through your company or community.
