Is there such a thing as "full scholarship"?

Postby Star*Aloe » Thu Jan 19, 2012 3:42 am

if so, what (respectable) schools currently provide this?

I think, at least very technically, a "full scholarship" would be associated with those costs directly attributed to attending. I.e., full tuition would be the easiest line, and the one most use, but it might include a stipend for books, transportation, etc. There are some basic costs associated with simply living, and those are rarely (ever?) covered.

If we're talking full tuition, several schools give them. However, there is a difference between "Full-ride" and a scholarship that only covers the current estimated costs (i.e., the 120K offered at IU-Bloomington to so many last year).

150k? Really? I am not saying you are lying but your profile says you are from Cali so it would only be about 105k over 3 years.

I have a full tuition scholarship and a 1500 stipend, but no cost of living money.

My scholarship at Indiana states it's full tuition for three years, it didn't have a figure listed so I was thinking tuition increases would be covered. I better confirm this when I go visit. I've heard of a couple of people getting small stipends (4k) but unfortunately I'm not one of them.

That's a pretty badass scholly from UCLA, congrats.
