Policy Regarding Outside Scholarships
Institutional policy states that outside scholarships will first replace the student’s self-help (loans and/or work study) awards where available, thus reducing the amount a student may need to borrow or work. Following the reduction of self-help aid, we will also allow outside scholarships to help cover your minimum student income contribution. If the total of your outside scholarship(s) exceeds your self-help awards and student contribution, we may be required to reduce other forms of aid including Scripps College Grant.

Policy on Health Insurance
**Scripps requires all students to have health insurance, either through their parents or another plan.  If the student is not covered by a parental plan, the student may request that the Scripps Grant be increased to cover the cost of a Scripps Student Health Insurance Plan premium. 

Policy on Travel Allowance
*Transportation cost estimates vary by student based on the geographic location of their permanent residence. 

Other Details
The student summer work contribution will be approximately $1,200 but may vary slightly from year to year.
