Excelsior Scholarship

Tuition-free scholarship for eligible New York State residents

The Excelsior Scholarship is a “last dollar” scholarship and will cover the cost of tuition not met by the eligible New York State resident student’s other federal, state, institutional, and private sources of grant assistance.

New applicants

The Spring 2020 Excelsior Scholarship application is open until January 30, 2020. Apply now if you are a first-time college student or a current or transferring student on track to earn your associate’s degree in two years since your first college matriculation.

Current recipients

If you are a current Excelsior Scholarship recipient, you do not need to apply again. However, you will have to complete both the FAFSA and NYS TAP applications each year.
