Do scholarships lessen/increase if you switch from PT to FT?

If I get a $40,000 scholarship to a school ($10, 000 a year for 4 years in PT) does the money lessen/increase if I switch to FT after the first year? I just wanted to ask here first lol

this depends on school...

this was asked at a rutgers open house last year and, as i remember, rutgers said that the scholly amount stays the same just spread over a different time frame (PT being a longer time frame)

if it's the same at your school that offered 40, then the total amount would be 40 just spread differently. of course, check w/ the school

That's what I figured, but I'll call the schools in case. Thanks!
