    It depends on the scholarship -- different scholarships use different criteria. There is no one-size-fits-all.

    And if they use weighted GPAs, they may recalculate their own weighting. Also, for either weighted or unweighted GPAs, they may recalculate including or excluding specific courses differently from what your high school includes or excludes.
