Can a student receive more than one scholarship?
As a general practice, students are ineligible to receive more than one Freshman Scholarship, excluding Elite Scholarships, and typically do not receive more than one General Scholarship. Students may receive a combination of Freshman, General, and Departmental Scholarships, provided the total amount awarded in institutional scholarships does not exceed Auburn’s annual estimated cost of attendance. External Scholarships do not contribute to this total, and Auburn University does not limit External Scholarships by number or amount. However, any amount received in scholarships may affect the amount of federal financial aid for which students are eligible. Individual scholarships awarded by other internal or external sources may have restrictions which require them to be awarded or disbursed at a lesser amount.
