"Scholarship displacement, sometimes called “over-award” by colleges, can impact need-based financial aid awards in the package from their school, even if the scholarship (or scholarships) don’t cover all of their expenses."

- The Scholarship System

Note: Scholarship award displacement impacts need-based recipients.
