Work Study v Scholarship?
Last week I was notified that I received a $2000/yr scholarship. According to the financial aid website, outside scholarships first reduce work-study. My work-study is $2900. With the scholarship, it would be reduced to $900. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but apparently work-study is like pocket money; my paychecks would go directly to me, and they wouldn't be taken into consideration for FASFA next year. Wouldn't it be better to take the work study? (Throughout my junior and senior years of high school I've worked ~15 hours a week, so I'm used to working..)
