Scholarships

Scholarships must be renewed by filing the FAFSA and TAP Application for the following academic year. Full and partial scholarships, in combination with all New York state aid, may not exceed charges for tuition. Scholarship applicants are urged to apply early in the school year since scholarships are awarded on a priority basis and are subject to the current budget. Recipients must maintain a required cumulative index and full-time status for renewal of their scholarships and awards. The administration reserves the right to withdraw scholarships or awards if these requirements are not met.
