Scholarships, Merit or Need?

If the goal of scholarships is to make universities more accessible, should the money be distributed to the needy rather than the successful? How effective are merit-based scholarships when it comes to boosting post-secondary enrolment?

Merit scholarships tend to favour children coming from higher-income families, because those students can afford to spend more time on school and extracurricular activities since they don’t have to work.
