If you receive an MIT scholarship it is a gift that you do not need to repay.

MIT scholarships are awarded based on financial need and come from endowed funds, gifts from MIT alumni and friends, and general MIT funds. You are automatically considered for an MIT scholarship if you apply for financial aid and fill out the CSS PROFILE.

Scholarship recipients must submit an annual Student Information Review Form to provide us with information about your background, interests, and experiences so that we may match you with the right scholarship. We will contact you when we need this form.

Our scholarship donors take an interest in learning about their scholarship recipients, so we may ask you to write your donor to share your experiences and thank them for their support.
