Received a scholarship
A. Has he ever received a scholarship? If yes, how much was it?
B. He's applied for a scholarship for a couple of times but he has never got one.
- Are these sentences grammatical and natural?
Thanks a lot to Teachers and members!
Re: Received a scholarship
They're OK. Note that in AmE, we use gotten as the past participle of get. Also, you do not have to repeat he in the 2nd sentence. While I have added for at the end of the first sentence, I still don't like the practice of ending a sentence with a preposition. However, as you asked if the sentence is natura, I will say that it is. Insofar as grammar is concerned, I'll leave that for others to answer.
