Private Outside Awards

Financial Aid: Private Awards

  • The University of Scranton Outside Gift Policy
  • Private Scholarship Announcements
  • Scholarship Searches on the World Web

Many private scholarships are offered by local civic, church, club and high school organizations. Consult your high school guidance department to determine which programs you mail be eligible for and apply to them. It is recommended that you keep photocopies of all applications and documents filed. Finally, students should respond in a timely manner to requests for corrections or additional information.


Students should notify the Financial Aid Office if they are receiving any privately funded scholarships or grants by submitting a photocopy of any scholarship notifications and information on the availability of these funds for subsequent years. The University will then be able to notify students of any impact on their financial aid package.

In recognition of its students' efforts in securing grants and scholarships from private organizations, the University has developed a gift aid policy that attempts to treat recipients in an equitable manner. The University will measure outside aid recipients' unmet financial need before adjusting any financial aid award package. Private grants/scholarships may be used to replace up to one-half of a student's remaining financial need. If no remaining need exists, University need based aid will be reduced by one-half the amount of the outside award. When a PHEAA grant and/or Title IV aid composes any part of a student's package, state and federal overaward procedures will be followed even after the above policy is applied.
