Outside Scholarships

<p>What is the deal regarding outside scholarships and Bowdoin? Will obtaining outside scholarships lower the amount grant money Bowdoin gives me?</p>

<p>I'm pretty sure this is not the case. I think that they do it based on everything else, keeping in mind that you rightfully earned that outside scholarship money and should not be considered when calculating finaid.</p>

<p>no, first the outside scholarships will lower any loan, then work study, then grant. I think scholarships can also be used towards the summer work contribution.</p>

<p>good to know.</p>
