Are outside scholarships even worth applying for?
There are a few outside scholarships that my D19 may be a strong contender for. But from the research I’ve done, I’m not sure it’s worth her even applying. My understanding is that colleges will deduct from our FA packet (specifically need based) and ultimately we will still be paying the same amount of our expected family contribution. Am I understanding this correctly? If I am, then what is the point of applying for them?9 replies
