There are many places to find outside scholarships. If you belong to clubs and organizations, please speak to their main office for scholarship information. Please follow us on Twitter for outside scholarship opportunities.

If you receive assistance from private sources, these funds will need to be reported to the Financial Aid Office. This would include outside scholarships or tuition assistance awarded within the academic year. The total amount received from all resources cannot exceed the student’s cost of attendance.
In efforts to lower educational loan debt, it is our policy to apply an outside scholarship toward the Graduate PLUS Loan should the amount requested is up to the student’s cost of attendance within their overall financial aid package.
Federal Work-Study is a federal financial aid work program funded by Keck Graduate Institute and the United States Department of Education.

Riggs School Student Handbook
In cases of withdrawal, KGI reduces tuition, fees, fellowship awards and eligibility for student loans according to the schedule below. Date of withdrawal is defined as the date that the KGI Academic Affairs Office receives a signed statement of withdrawal from the student. Reductions of student loans are returned directly to the lenders of the funds. The following refund schedule complies with U.S. Department of Education requirements for calculating refunds of federal student loans in cases of withdrawal from an academic program.
Note that if students have already received checks from KGI for credit balances on student tuition accounts before withdrawal, the refund calculation may require students to reimburse KGI for all or part of the original credit balances.
SPHS Student Handbook
If a student withdraws, is administratively withdrawn or is expelled from the KGI SoP, the student is responsible for 100% of the tuition and fees for the entire term. If the student has received Federal Direct Unsubsidized or Graduate PLUS Loans, KGI must complete a Federal Return to Title IV (R2T4) calculation based on the federal formula. The R2T4 dictates the amount of Federal Title IV aid that must be returned to the federal government by the school and the student. The student is responsible for reimbursing KGI if federal funds must be returned based on the R2T4 calculation. If the student received financial assistance from outside sources, a portion of the refund may be required to be returned to the grant, scholarship, or loan source from which the assistance was received.
