How to Check & Accept Your Scholarships
Note: Scholarships CANNOT be "accepted" in BengalWeb
If you are "offered" a scholarship, an acceptance form will be mailed to your address listed on BengalWeb. An email may also be sent to your ISU email address requiring that you accept scholarships through the Bengal Online Scholarship System (BOSS). Thank you letters may also be requested. Letters (if requested) and acceptance form(s) must be sent/submitted to the Scholarship Office in order for your scholarship to disburse. If you are offered an award, detailed instructions will be provided in your “official” offer letter (mailed) or ISU email.
If you are required to write a thank you letter, please take your time in writing these letters and follow the “Thank You Guidelines”. These letters are very valuable and appreciated by our donors. Please note, some scholarships do not require an “Acceptance Form” and will automatically be accepted. Visit: Guidelines for Writing Thank You Letters

The Status column will indicate if you have "Accepted" the scholarship OR if it is still in "Offered" status.
If your scholarship is still in "Offered" status, you may need to complete an "Acceptance Form" and/or "Thank You Letter", or endorse a check (for outside scholarships) in order for your award to change to "Accepted" status in BengalWeb. Please contact the Scholarship Office if you should have further questions about your award.
