What should I do if I receive an outside scholarship?

Modified on Wed, 17 Aug 2022 at 04:29 PM

Did you receive an award letter or check from a scholarship organization? Remember these 3 items:

  1. Be sure you've read the letter carefully. Fulfill any requirements explained in the letter so you don't miss out on the scholarship.
  2. Send a copy of the check or award letter to the Lesley Financial Aid Office. You can do this by uploading it to the Support Hub via our secure dropbox.* Be sure to keep a copy for yourself.
  3. When we receive the award letter, we'll add the scholarship to your account. Your scholarship will be in a "pending" status until we receive the check. After that, we'll credit the funds to your account. You should follow up with the awarding agency to ensure the check arrives.


* Can't access our secure dropbox? You can mail your check to us at:
