One-Time Computer Grant

<p>I'm pretty sure this question has been asked before, but I'm still a little confused. How exactly does the technology grant to buy a computer work? I have a $5,000 scholarship from the Hearst Foundations and my campus job+summer savings adds up to be less than $3,000; however, I can't get the scholarship money until I get to Princeton in the fall (the form requires the school seal). Should I just buy my laptop now through SCI and save the receipt and get reimbursed after I get the scholarship money? </p>

<p>And on a side note...if I were to buy a macbook pro through SCI, would I still get the free iPod touch that apple gives out to students who buy apple products?</p>
