University Of Oregon Merit Scholarships

I received a merit scholarship for uofO and if I’m going there I am probably going to need a little bit more money. I’m an out of state student and by the time I finish high school I will qualify for the next merit scholarship award bracket. Does anyone know anything about writing an appeal letter for merit scholarships or the chances they will reconsider ?

My daughter appealed based on receiving more $ from other similar universities and was told they do not compare/consider other school’s grants. She did not receive any additional money.

Do they offer need based aid at all?
