    merit based awards at most universities do not factor in need.  The ones that do identify themselves, saying that they are a merit based award for someone who can demonstrate a need.  

    Frankly, if you go on some websites (College Confidential is one that comes to mind) and go to the college you are interested in, and post your credentials, they can give you a pretty good idea of the level of merit-based awards you'll qualify for at that university.
