Financial Assistance Scholarship
Summer College offers need-based aid for qualifying students. These scholarships are only available to students who are US citizens and permanent residents, and whose family has an adjusted gross income of $75,000 or less.
Scholarships are provided on a first-come, first-served basis as funds are limited. In order to be considered, students must submit their family’s most recent tax returns with their application. The deadline for scholarship applications is March 1, 2019.
Each application is evaluated independently and extenuating circumstances may be considered in awarding aid.
The following is a guideline of the maximum potential award. Awards may be in any amount up to these caps based on program length:
- 1 week program: $250
- 2 week program: $500
- 3 week program: $1000
- 4 week program: $1500
- 6 week program: $2500
Scholarships for Community Based Organizations
Community Based Organizations, other student sponsoring agencies, and personnel should contact the Summer Office directly to discuss potential scholarships and financial assistance opportunities. Please email the Summer College office or call 315.443.5000.
Discounts are only available on tuition and program fees. Discounts are not applied to room, board, or activity fees.
The Central New York Resident discount is the only discount that can be combined with one other form of financial assistance. All other discounts and scholarships cannot be combined. If the student is eligible for multiple forms of aid, then s/he will be deemed eligible for the singular form of financial assistance providing the greatest benefit to the student.
