Scholarships & Financial Aid

The 2020-21 New York State Excelsior Scholarship application has been released and will remain open until August 31, 2020! 
For your reference, please note that the NYS Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC) has advised the following:  
"The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically reduced state revenues and the processing of new applications is pending on Federal assistance, which has been delayed since April. Excelsior Scholarship awards may have to be reduced and/or prioritized for current recipients as provided for under the program.
We continue to encourage students to submit the application and remain hopeful with regard to funding.
