I agree with FTD. Small fish attracts bigger fish here.
If the kid worked hard, he should be rewarded as what another kid would. Being born to a wealthy family is not by choice.This is not a financial aid issue. It is by merit/athletic achievement, something to be proud of.
Once awarded the scholarship, he might decline, by his choice, parents' persuation, or public critique.
It is almost 100% guaranteed the family in this type scenerio will make generous $$$ contribution to the school.
