Report an Outside Scholarship

Many students receive awards from outside the university, such as those from local civic or educational organizations, employee educational benefit programs, the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, or Reserve Officers' Training Corps. These awards must be reported to the Office of Financial Aid. They will be incorporated into financial aid packages and will be used first to offset equal amounts of loans and/or work.
