Received a secondary scholarship via my own efforts and now my university is refusing to contribute their guaranteed scholarship
Hi. I received a scholarship via my own efforts. The scholarship is via a federally funded organization and the only connection to my university is that we have our own leader of the scholarship division here. My university also has guaranteed me a scholarship for my time here, but upon my second scholarship's payment towards my tuition this semester, my university has cancelled their payment of the guaranteed funds. There is no policy on the university's website that states any terms that it would be cancelled. The university is claiming that any other scholarships that are "through the university" override the guaranteed funds. My second scholarship is not funded by the university though, and is instead federally funded. What are my rights?
