Federal, State, and institutional regulations require that we collect information from each student regarding any "outside" scholarships received. Examples of these would include scholarships received from a parent's employer, your high school, civic organizations, Rotary Clubs, churches, or community foundations.These scholarships will be used to fund any remaining financial need, as defined by the federal government’s formula.
If your need is fully met, these scholarships will replace any need-based student loans or work programs. Grants and scholarships issued by Wittenberg University are usually not affected by outside scholarships.Please be sure to forward any special instructions associated with these scholarships to our office, especially if the donor requires that we send them an invoice, complete special forms, or provide verification of enrollment or grade transcripts.
Additionally, ensure that the donor has our correct address, and be sure to follow up with the donor if your account is not credited by August 5 for fall semester or December 15 for spring semester. YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CREDITED WHEN WITTENBERG RECEIVES THE FUNDS
If a scholarship check is sent directly to you, please forward it to the Financial Aid Office for processing. If the check is issued to you and Wittenberg jointly, be sure to endorse the back of the check before sending it to us.
PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE A COPY OF THE LETTER OR CERTIFICATION THAT NOTIFIES YOU OF YOUR SCHOLARSHIP.
