Outside Scholarships

Many study abroad program providers offer both need-based aid and merit scholarships.  In addition there are national scholarships such as the Gilman, Boren NSEP, and Freeman Asia that offer study abroad scholarships.  We expect students who receive financial assistance from Whitman to apply to all outside scholarships for which they may be eligible to help make off-campus studies more affordable.  For specific advice about eligibility for scholarships, please consult with Barbara Hoffman, Assistant Director of Off-Campus Studies.

If a student receives an outside scholarship from a study abroad program provider or national study abroad scholarship, they will typically receive the entirety of those funds to help defray the cost of their off-campus studies fees.  Receiving an outside scholarship will not reduce their Whitman scholarship, except in the rare case in which their combined Whitman financial aid and outside scholarship exceeds the total basic cost of their off-campus studies program.

Any outside scholarship a student receives could also reduce their loan eligibility.  It is possible that they might qualify for less subsidized loan as a result of the additional scholarship due to their expected family contribution from completing the FAFSA.
