Outside Scholarships

Yale College

Students who have been awarded an outside scholarship that will be paid directly to Yale University should complete an Outside Scholarship/Resource Update Form and fax it to (203) 436-9768. (Note: College Savings Plans and Prepaid Tuition Plans are not outside scholarships and, therefore, should not be reported.) Once reported, the outside scholarship will be reflected on the student’s monthly account statement as anticipated financial aid credit until the funds are received by the University. Upon receipt, the scholarship will appear on the account statement in the Current Payments section. The student will be notified by e-mail of the need to come to the Cashier’s Office at 246 Church Street to endorse any outside scholarship checks as required. Such checks cannot be credited to the account until the student endorsement has been obtained. If endorsements are not done in a timely manner, the checks will be returned to the donors and the students will be responsible for the balances on their accounts.

Graduate and professional schools

Students should notify their particular financial aid office of any outside scholarships that will be paid directly to Yale University.
