If I receive a scholarship, will it affect the amount of financial aid I receive from my college?

Scholarships are usually looked at in one of three ways:

  1. To fill "unmet need," meaning to fill the difference between the cost of the college and the financial aid you’ve been offered.
  2. To reduce the amount in loans you need to borrow.
  3. To reduce your college's grant assistance to you.

Call your school's financial aid office for specific information on how your school treats scholarships.
