Note: Scholarships have deadlines. Read applications carefully. Discuss questions with your financial aid counselor. Funds will either go to the school or to you. All of your student aid added together can’t be more than your cost of attendance at your college or career school. You  need to let your school know if you have a scholarship. This allows the financial aid office to subtract that amount from your cost of attendance  from any other financial support you receive, i.e loans.  If anything is left over, then financial aid  can cover it if you’re eligible.
