When are scholarships offered?

Postby Striven46 » Wed Jan 26, 2011 1:59 pm

So after a few forum searches I failed to find much information on when scholarships are offered--does this generally occur at the time you're offered admission, or later? If later, roughly when can I expect to know?

Depends on the school. Some send scholarships with admission, some a week or two later, and some make you wait a couple months.

Beachbum is right.

It depends on the school. I would say over half inform you of a scholarship with your admittance letter. Then the rest make you wait. Some schools (*cough* cornell *end cough*) make you wait late into March.
