OK, so now I'm thoroughly confused
I used the CalNet ID to access my award on BEAR facts. My grant differs from the scholarship I tried to match. Was my match rejected, or have they not processd it yet? Also, the award is strictly for the 2008-2009 school year. Would my award be reduced in subsequent years as I become a California resident?
I'm calling the f/a office tomorrow for sure.
I believe, the grant is need based. It's not automatically renewable. In fact, if you work a firm job your 1L summer, you can pretty much kiss that sucker goodbye. (BTW. I fully support this policy.)
I'm not positive, but I think that out of state grants and in state grants might differ by the maximum amount that they give out. If that actually is the case, then you'd likely get the other grant amount in subsequent years if you didn't earn enough to get your grant striped outright. But w/ the different between in state and out of state tuition narrowing, I'm not sure how much the difference from one yr to the next might be.
