Outside Scholarship Checks are processed by the Cashier's Office.
Any financial assistance given to a student that is not awarded through FMU is considered to be outside scholarship. Outside scholarships may include funds from a civic organization or a church. All outside scholarships must be reported to the Financial Assistance Office.
If an outside scholarship is received by the student with FMU as one of the endorsees, the student must bring the check into the Cashier's Office to be verified and processed.
If FMU receives the outside scholarship and both the student and FMU are the endorsees, the student will be notified that his/her endorsement is needed to process the scholarship.
