Q: Do I have to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to receive a scholarship?
A: The FAFSA is required for need-based scholarships.
Q: How is the scholarship award determined?
A: Applications are evaluated based on completeness, required GPA, and if the student meets and completes all of the scholarship requirements. Students should submit a complete application that demonstrates why they deserve to receive a scholarship. Every attempt is made to match students with the specific requirement for a scholarship fund. Students may be awarded a scholarship for which they did not specifically apply.
Q: Can I apply for more than one scholarship?
A: Student’s may apply for as many scholarships for which they meet the eligibility requirements. Please note: due to the high demand for scholarship dollars, only one endowed scholarship per academic year, per student, may be awarded.
Q: Will a scholarship affect my other financial aid awards?
A: Student’s who are receiving federal, state or institutional need-based financial aid may have their financial aid awards reduced with the addition of a scholarship (total aid cannot exceed financial need and the cost of attendance at Kettering University).
Q: What happens if I do not attend Kettering University for a semester that I was awarded a scholarship?
A: The scholarship will be cancelled for the semester awarded. The scholarship can only be used during the academic year that it was awarded.
