Paying for College

After you get all of your scholarships what if you have more than your school costs?

So do they take the rest of the money back?

If they are grants, I believe you get to keep them (depends) but I believe whenever 100% cost is met, they cap the scholarship at that amount. (This is most cases, not all, so check directly with whoever/wherever you are getting it from)

All the excess you get to keep it, you should use it unless you want to donate it to a charity
