Resume Question: Listing Scholarship

Postby Qwerty12345 » Wed Oct 03, 2012 1:50 pm

If you receive a full tuition scholarship for college, that does not include room and board, is it fair to list it as a "full scholarship"?
Would the answer also be yes (assuming it was for the previous question) if that full tuition scholarship isn't completely full anymore, due to tuition increasing by 1k over the past 2 years, and the scholarship amount remaining the same?

Why not just list the scholarship and put the amount per year in parenthesis? If the scholarship doesn't cover all of your tuition, it is not a full scholarship.

I don't know for sure because I've never gotten one, but I think room and board costs would fall under a "stipend."

I had a full scholarship that covered room and board. On my resume I wrote Full Athletic Scholarship. I think full tuition scholarship is a good idea.
