Outside Scholarships and Awards | Graduate & Professional

Students who receive outside scholarships or awards are required to report these resources to the Financial Aid Office. These resources may affect a student’s eligibility for Federal Work-Study and the amount available to the student through federal loan programs. All financial aid, in combination with outside scholarships, cannot exceed a student’s Cost of Attendance.

Scholarship providers should send the outside scholarship payment directly to the Financial Aid Office. The scholarship check should be made payable to Pacific University so that funds may credited directly to the student's Business Office account. The student's full name and PUNet ID (if known) should be included in the memo section of the check. Checks made payable to the student or co-payable to the student and Pacific University must be signed by the student prior to submitting the scholarship check to the Financial Aid Office.
