Good morning! Our group is in a discussion about FERPA as it relates to publishing scholarship award amounts for specific students in our endowment reports.
In the event a scholarship is only awarded to one student, our endowment report simply notes the student's name, class, hometown and major. If there are multiple student recipients, we list all of that same info, plus a total amount awarded. We have always been under the impression that publishing a student's specific award amount would be a violation of FERPA.
We plan to verify this with University Counsel, but also want to hear from you. Thoughts?Thanks in advance,Suzanne McAdamsSamford University
