Temple Financial Aid+Scholarships

I've started looking into Temple University due to the President's Scholarship. When I run the estimated cost calculator, it shows that I might receive a $8200 institutional grant from Temple, without the scholarship being applied. Does Temple calculate financial aid before or after a school-based scholarship (like the Presidential) is applied? If my total cost (OoS) is $42000 before the scholarship, and $18000 after the scholarship, will I receive financial aid based on my pre-scholarship total or post-scholarship total?

Before it's asked, I did email the SFS office and got a generic "Apply, submit your FAFSA. and then you'll know." type answer. I figured CC, after seeing all of the people excited about the scholarship, would have an answer.

Thank you all for your assistance!
