It is the policy of Washington University that receipt of an outside scholarship will not result in a reduction of the student’s Washington University scholarship.
In rare cases, the university is compelled to reduce the student's
Washington University scholarship. These infrequent situations include:
- When the total amount of all scholarships and grants exceeds the student's annual cost of attendance at Washington University.
- When the student has been awarded a federal or state grant as part
of the financial assistance package and the total of these grants -
along with a Washington University scholarship and outside scholarships -
would exceed that student's cost.
Please note: The federal government requires students to
report their outside scholarships to Student Financial Services. You may
do this on behalf of the student by providing our office with a copy of the outside scholarship
award letter or certificate.
On behalf of Washington University and our students, we thank you for providing scholarship support!
