i am just beginning to apply for scholarships and i was wondering what you do if you win more money than is needed for college. Like lets say that you apply for 10 scholarships, and get $5000 out of it. And then, after you have won these, you find out that a college has given you a full ride scholarship, covering tuition, books and room and board. Do you still get to keep the $5000, and save it for something like a semester abroad, or do you have to notify the people who gave you the scholarships and decline them? thanks!
