NMS and Dean's?

<p>I know you can't combine the presidential or trustee scholarship with the NMS scholarship, but is it possible to receive the deans scholarship on top of the NMS or is it just dwarfed by the scholarship of a greater amount?</p>

<p>You are correct, you will receive only the larger of the two:

<p>Trustee, Presidential, Leadership, Deans, Directors,
and Associates Scholarships

These scholarships are mutually exclusive. If you are awarded more
than one, you will receive only the one with the greatest value.
The relative value of these scholarships is based on the cost of 18 units
of tuition for 8 semesters (10 semesters for students in the five-year
Bachelor of Architecture program).

<p>NMF get an extra $1,000/year, and there are many other scholarships which can be combined with those scholarships including departmental awards, University Scholarships and continuing student scholarships.</p>

<p>Congratulations on your awards!</p>

<p>Thanks for the clarification, and the well wishes! I'm not sure about the deans yet but I guess it doesn't matter since I'm a finalist :) fingers crossed for an acceptance!</p>
