also do these come with your admissions letter?
UVA and Michigan simply release merit scholarship awards earlier in the process. Penn, Duke, Georgetown, NYU, and many others give scholarship awards in March or early April after they have your financial aid information. This differs from the large, often full-tuition name scholarships at these schools, however, which have their own separate processes.
And yes, UVA's scholarship info comes with the admissions letter.
