SUNY is committed to recognizing and rewarding student excellence, which is why we offer a variety of scholarships across our 64 campuses. Some of these awards are for academic excellence, while others recognize extraordinary artistic or athletic talent. And, others take into account special talents, leadership, community service, specific majors, and financial need.
Explore scholarship opportunities listed below at each SUNY campus. Essentially, scholarships are free money – a form of financial aid that does not have to be repaid. Because student financial need is sometimes an eligibility requirement or consideration, we encourage you to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), as early as possible in January of the year preceding your fall enrollment.
One of the best ways to search for scholarships is through a personalized search, like FastWeb, that compares your background with a database of awards. Additional resources include FinAid and your school counselor. Remember, you should never have to pay to search for scholarships.
