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! These funds will help you to reduce your educational expenses.

Dartmouth will allow you to use these funds to reduce or replace the employment and student loan components of your award. In some cases, they may also be used to reduce your Family Contribution. It is rare, but there are times when a student’s outside resources are large enough that we are required to partially reduce their scholarship award from Dartmouth in order to comply with federal awarding guidelines.

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