If scholarships were only intended to help students pay for an education, then scholarships to the wealthy would of course make not sense. But scholarships are for the school as well, a recruitment tool to craft the student body the school wants, so giving money to those who don't truly need it is readily justifiable, though certainly one imagines most financial aid should go and does go to the needy.
