Scholarship Opportunities

Are you a senior who is concerned about how you will pay for college? Remember that there are many different scholarship opportunities that you may be eligible for. Here are some of the more popular scholarship opportunities you should be aware of:  

The High School Guidance office should be the first stop for any high school student. See your counselor for more information.

  • If you have a particular major in mind, music, for example, check your high school’s music department for upcoming scholarships.
  • Internet searches can reveal a wealth of scholarship opportunities. The New York State Higher Education Services Corp. Web site (HESC.org) is a great place to start.
  • www.Fastweb.com is another great scholarship resource.
  • Employers may offer college scholarships as an employee benefit. Your parents or guardians should check with their human resources department to see if a scholarship is available for family members.
  • Colleges or schools you are considering may have scholarships available. College websites are a wealth of information about paying for college, and include details about campus scholarships offered to incoming students. Look in the admissions or financial aid sections.

FAFSA® Changes for 2017–18

On Sept. 14, 2015, President Obama announced significant changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) process that will impact millions of students. Starting with the 2017­–18 application cycle, the following changes will be put in place: 

  • Students will be able to submit a FAFSA®earlier.  Students will be able to file a 2017–18 FAFSA as early as Oct. 1, 2016, rather than beginning on Jan. 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.
  • Income information.Beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA, students will be required to report income information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017–18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information.
