How is the merit scholarship distributed?

The merit scholarship is applied as a credit toward your university bill. Half of the merit scholarship is applied in the fall semester, and the other half applies to the spring semester. Therefore, if your merit scholarship is $10,000, you will see a $5,000 credit on the fall semester bill and a $5,000 credit again on the spring bill.
