What is scholarship award displacement? 

Scholarship award displacement is when one form of student financial aid (i.e., a private scholarship, external scholarship, or outside scholarship) replaces another form of student financial aid (for example, an institutional scholarship or institutional grant). Depending on the university/college private scholarship policy, the private scholarship can also impact a student's federal loan or federal work-study package. Each university/college has its own private scholarship policy. Scholarship award displacement prevents students from graduating with the least amount of student loan debt. 

Note: Scholarship award displacement impacts need-based recipients.

Scholarship Award Displacement Example 

Mia currently has an outstanding balance of $12,000. She decides to apply for scholarships so that she can pay for her outstanding bill.

 

Mia wins a $10,000 scholarship from a scholarship foundation. After she submits the scholarship check to her university, the university decides to decrease her institutional grant by $10,000.

 

Leaving Mia to have an outstanding balance of $12,000. This is one way a university or college may practice scholarship award displacement.
