Son was admitted to CU Boulder and Univ Kansas but with the admission letter there was no mention of merit scholarships, etc. Are scholarship offers typically mailed later or if scholarships were going to be offered would they have been sent with the admission letter? I know scholarhips at public universities are few and far between but just curious of when admitted students are notified about these.

We found that shortly after acceptances were sent, information on scholarships daughter had already won ( based on GPA and Scores), or scholarships that were college based that she had to apply for, were sent.
Say a week or maybe two.

I think the general pattern of scholarships is either they come with the acceptance letters or they arrive shortly after the acceptance letter --at least , this is how the timing is with all the Seniors in my D's class. Good Luck !

It all depends on the school. DS (last year) had some scholarship offers with his acceptance letters, some a couple of weeks later, and some that came at the end of March/beginning of April. He also had one school that initially awarded him his merit package with acceptance, then increased the award in late March (we did not ask them to reconsider the aid package...they just did. This was music merit aid).

The state universities that we looked at had a separate application to apply for merit aid. In one case the form was due on a specific date, in the others the form was sent about a week after acceptance.

Hmmm....I thought there was a section "do you want to be considered for financial aid" that we checked for these two schools but don't remember a form we also had to complete. Thanks for the info... was curious because out of state CU Boulder is big bucks. Son was accepted into Honors Program, but no where in any of the stuff he received did they mention financial aid. Guess we'll check with their FA department.
Thanks for the responses though.

Dads2kids: have you checked boulder's web site? It seems to indicate that scholarship applications are filed by using the cu-bouder pin to access the online applications which are only available until MARCH 1ST. So I hope you've either done this already, or you read this soon! There appears to be a number of scholarships that are automatic consideration, but there are also a number that require essays. There's a PDF file that indicates which and how much.

Yes, thanks. We just found that Sunday night - Feb 29th! Most scholarships appeared to be geared to specific circumstances for which my son did not qualify. Several others he would have qualified for but seemed to be $1000 - $1500 amounts which required essays and only 1-4 awards would be made. Had we found it sooner we would have pursued it. However, we decided against it at 8PM w/ 4 hours to go. As it turns out he was accepted Monday to UCI on a Regents scholarship which makes it a moot point. Now just waiting for April 1st like everyone else.
