Basically, I got 6k/yr from the Marion C. Early fund. Which is confusing to me, because I can't tell if this is my total offer or not(are all scholarships from this fund?) Obviously, if this is my total offer I will withdraw, because this is not competittive compared to my other offers. I can pm or post the body of the message if it will help, but it basically says you will be asked in the future to "pay it forward."
It's a type of need-based grant. You're not legally obligated to pay it back but they ask you to pay it back anyway out of appreciation once you're financially able. Basically you benefitted from it so donate back when you're an alum so future students can benefit as well. I dunno if it's your final offer but it's separate from the normal merit awards
