Question about scholarship stipulation

Postby phi63alpha » Fri Apr 13, 2012 10:07 pm

I was awarded a 30k scholarship from a GW. There is absolutely no mention of stipulations in the award letter, school's website, in my awards notice online, etc. Is it safe to assume that there is no stipulation?

I ask because I have to accept tomorrow and this issue never crossed my mind. Thanks for any info.

There may a stip for you to remain in 'academic good standing'

doesn't hurt to ask them

And I'm assuming that just means I can't fail out right?

I just sent an email to them and thanks.

Yeah. I was going to choose Davis but the parents knew I wanted to go to GW, so they're making up the difference.

Yeah, word on the street is GW is no longer putting stips on their scholarships. Good standing = don't cheat, don't fail out:

Thanks, Resident Troller.

I hope they email you back quickly enough, otherwise, they're always available by phone as well--it should be a pretty simple answer for them.
