Details Named Scholarships are awarded to undergraduates from funds given to the College every year by individuals or organizations, and are “named” by or for the donor.

NOTE: If you are awarded a Scripps College Grant or are receiving other scholarships like QuestBridge, New Generation, or Margo Leonetti O’Connell ’64, you must fill out the Scripps Grant Recipient Form. Please also note that awarded named scholarships will be used to replace some or all of your Scripps Grant; they will not replace loan or work awards and cannot be used to reduce estimated family contributions.

Since many donors are lifelong friends of Scripps and enjoy hearing directly from students about life at Scripps today, you will be asked to write a thank-you letter to one or more of these benefactors if you are awarded a named scholarship. Additionally, you may be asked to attend a function at which you will meet your scholarship donor or their family members
