Question: Will the scholarship cover living in a dorm or in off-campus housing?
Answer: A schoolís Direct Cost of Attendance budget varies according to a studentís residence during the school year.

If a student elects to live in housing other than with a parent or legal guardian, the Direct Cost of Attendance Budget used to determine a studentís need will include a room and board allowance.

It is the responsibility of the student to notify The J.L. Bedsole Scholars Program of his/her living arrangements. The Scholars Program must be notified if the student will be living at home with his/her parents or in a dorm/apartment during the school year. Failure to notify the Scholars Program that the student is residing with his/her parents may jeopardize the scholarship.

The J.L. Bedsole Scholars Program pays for tuition, books, fees, room and board. Once scholarship funds have been forwarded to the school, the studentís school will apply the scholarship funds accordingly. Students living off-campus, but not with parents/legal guardian, should receive a credit from the college/university to apply to room and board if any funds are still available once the scholarship has been applied to tuition, books and fees.
