New York Scholarships

New York has an almost overwhelming number of opportunities for higher education. The state features the largest public university system in the nation, not to mention prestigious private schools like New York University, Columbia University and Vassar College.

More overwhelming than the selection, though, is how to pay for your postsecondary education. Don’t worry: cost doesn’t have to deter you from the school of your dreams. Regardless of the educational route you choose, there are several New York scholarships to help you pay your way.

Popular New York Scholarships

The New York state government funds a variety of scholarship opportunities, such as the Regents Professional Opportunity Scholarship. This scholarship reserved for students enrolled in vocational degree programs.

In light of the September 11th attacks, the state also sponsors the Memorial Scholarship for Families of Deceased Police Officers and Firefighters. This award is renewable for four years.

Other state-funded scholarship programs have less specific requirements. The Tuition Assistance Program and New York State Scholarship for Academic Excellence are more generally based on need and merit, respectively.

Applying for New York Scholarships

Because of New York City’s tremendously multicultural population, students of diverse backgrounds can find many New York scholarships to apply for. One of these is the Columbus Citizens Foundation College Scholarship, for Italian American students entering college.

While most New York scholarships have open applications, some require a nomination. For example, applicants to the Eleanor Allwork Scholarship Grant Program, which is designed for an architecture major, must first earn a nomination from the dean of their school.
