If you’re applying as a first-year student, you may be eligible for a renewable scholarship based on your academic success in high school, or your financial need, or both. All undergraduate students who do not live in New York State are guaranteed a renewable $8,000 scholarship. Transfer students are also eligible for academic merit scholarships for up to three years of undergraduate study.
