Outside scholarships, also known as private scholarships, are not managed or administered by Southwestern, but by outside entities. Although Southwestern does not award these funds, federal, state, and Southwestern University policies require that the University use outside scholarships as a source of financial aid. If you have been awarded an outside scholarship, please complete our Outside Scholarship Declaration Form.
Information regarding outside scholarships is presented on this page for the convenience of Southwestern students. The University does not endorse, sponsor, or have any role in the administration of these private aid programs, and therefore disclaims any responsibility or liability for the information provided.
