    My son also received notice that he will be receiving a Faculty Scholarship! He attended the fall I2E event and we were not expecting this news since so much time had passed. We found out by logging into his goBaylor account and noticing that his merit scholarship amount had changed significantly. We then checked his Bear Web account & confirmed by calling the financial aid office. Beyond thrilled!

    great news. I'm still hoping for faculty/carr p/honors scholarships for my S but super excited that he got Regents' Gold. As you say, beyond thrilled!

    @jdconner1976 @dpBU23 My DD's scholarship amount also went up today!! It's not full tuition, but it's above the President's Gold and a wonderful addition. How do we determine if this was part of the fall I2E, which she attended and submitted an essay for, or something else?

    if you login to BearWeb -> student financial services -> financial aid -> award information -> awards for a specific year -> (choose year) -> award overview. This will show every element of current financial aid for your D

    My son also did not receive full tuition will the faculty scholarship, but combined with his original merit scholarship, came close.

    @teaforwendy
    Forgot to say - the financial aid office told me when I called to inquire what the scholarship was for, that it was from the I2E event.

    @jdconner1976 my DD called today and they told her the same thing. Said very few of these were awarded. #unexpectedblessing.
    The members of this thread have had some good luck with scholarships!

    My National Merit Finalist daughter was not awarded the RG but was awarded another merit scholarship that stacked on top of the merit scholarship she was awarded at admission. Is that what your daughter was awarded @teaforwendy ? We really needed the RG and are honestly shocked she didn’t receive it with top 1% ACT and NMF but still grateful she got close with the additional merit scholarship.
    We still haven’t received any explanation from Baylor in the form of letter or email though.

    sorry to hear @valarrie - seems your D is what they were looking for. Sorry to ask but you say she didn't get RG but you haven't received any letter or email. How have you confirmed she did not get RG if no notice? Did Financial Aid share this over a phone call?

    I don't believe all notices have gone out @valarrie. I know of two NMF students who have also received no notification that they received or did not receive Regents Gold. Baylor has always notified students either way in the past, such as with Faculty and Getterman Scholarships.

    The admissions office has always been very vague on when notification could occur, but they have said it could be a few weeks into March before confirmation is given.
