    I called the university and they said it will still be awarded and there is no indication that it will be taken away.

    When do you find out about the Trustee Scholarship? Is in included in your decision info? On-line? Mail?

    My understanding, which is likely as limited as yours, is that the T'ee Scholarship notification precedes BU acceptance letters by a short period of time - like a day or two.

    I was a Trustee Scholar at BU and now serve on the Board of Admissions. There is absolutely no truth to the previous assertion that we are considering eliminating or paring down this scholarship program. To answer another question that was posed as well, the scholarship covers tuition and fees for all four years, provided that the student maintain a 3.5 GPA each academic year. (So if you earn a 3.4 GPA first semester and a 3.6 GPA or higher second semester, you're in good shape). I really enjoyed the program. You have the opportunity to meet with other students in the program once a week freshman year and listen to a series of lectures from the university's best professors. After freshman year, this lecture series is not required, but many upperclassmen attend because they're very interesting and it's also a great social event.

    And CONGRATS to saccolicious. :) I'm an applicant, too, and I hope to hear back from them soon! :D

    Congrats saccolicious! I got my letter today too. Though I'm in the northeast as well, so maybe if they sent them on the same day those living further away will receive theirs later. Who knows?

    BU Guru - Would you mind if I PM you with some questions about the Trustee Scholarship? My son has been offered the award, and we are a little shocked.
