Outside Scholarships

Additional Scholarship Opportunities

The Office of University Financial Aid encourages students to seek scholarship support from all sources. If a student receives a scholarship from an organization outside of CWRU, the state or federal government, it will first reduce any need-based student loans and/or employment expectation previously offered. Outside scholarships may reduce need-based grant, as well, if need-based student loans and/or employment have been eliminated to ensure students do not receive need-based aid greater than their documented financial need. The combination of aid from all sources cannot exceed a student’s cost of attendance for a particular academic year. Support or benefits specifically designated for tuition cannot be combined for any amount over the cost of tuition for a particular academic year.
