scholarship question

<p>So, my college sent me an acceptance letter along with a $5000 scholarship and I decided to SIR there because of money problems. But they recently came up to me saying that I couldn't qualify for the scholarship since I'm not a US Citizen. My parents and I are currently holding an E-2 Visa, and we are currently owning this one small business and my parents have been paying taxes for the US government. However I couldn't do FAFSA since I'm not a US Citizen. So my question is, do I really need to be a U.S. Citizen in order to receive a scholarship? Why would they send me the $5000 scholarship in the first place?</p>

<p>They process these things in bulk, or do not always check details when making awards. My condolences regarding the scholarship;; a similar thing happened to me with a $3K grant.</p>
