Application Tips for Scholarships
Received a Private Scholarship?
Emmanuel has a generous policy regarding the treatment of private scholarship awards as students who are awarded a private scholarship will not have their existing financial aid reduced unless the total of all scholarships and grants exceeds direct costs. Students who are awarded a private scholarship may also use it as a credit towards the bill before the funds are received by providing our office with a copy of the scholarship notice. Any private scholarships you notify us of will be considered pending until we receive the funds from you or the scholarship agency.
