Outside Scholarships

Many agencies, employers, military, and service organizations award funds to students. Receipt of these external awards may result in a reduction of Need-Based Federal Aid and Institutional Scholarships from Mercer. Therefore, if you are a financial aid recipient, you must notify the Office of Student Financial Planning, in writing, of any resources you anticipate receiving from sources other than Mercer. To the extent possible, we will adjust loan awards before reducing grant funds.

We encourage all students to apply for scholarships and grant funds each year!

Students must notify the Office of Student Financial Planning of any special instructions or billing information regarding external funds. All checks for these awards must be sent to the Office of Student Financial Planning. It is Mercer’s policy to equally divide external scholarships between fall tuition and spring tuition each semester unless otherwise specified by the donor.
