Will I lose some financial aid if I receive an outside award/scholarship?

General Financial Aid

If you have been awarded a scholarship from an outside source, congratulations! 

All outside scholarships, including tuition benefits, must be reported to the financial aid office. This includes scholarships or resources that are made payable to the student. Outside scholarships may be used to reduce or replace the student's work expectation and leave term earnings, as well as any health insurance cost that is not already covered by Dartmouth. First year students may also use outside scholarship to cover the allowable cost of a computer. Outside resources that exceed these amounts will reduce Dartmouth Scholarship dollar for dollar. They cannot be applied to reduce the Parent Contribution that has been calculated by Dartmouth.

If you are concerned about how outside sources of aid will impact your Dartmouth financial aid eligibility specifically, contact us!
