Scholarships

The SUNY Schenectady Foundation Scholarship Program

As part of our commitment to student access and success, the SUNY Schenectady Foundation offers scholarships to students currently or soon to be enrolled at SUNY Schenectady. Scholarships are available to prospective and current students, awarded based on an online application and essay.

The scholarship program for students is a key priority of the SUNY Schenectady Foundation. During the 2017-2018 school year, the Foundation awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships to help almost 200 students complete their degrees. Awards range from $250 to $5,000 and each goes directly toward fees and books on student accounts. Foundation scholarships are especially helpful because they are available ONLY to SUNY Schenectady students. 

The scholarship application period for the 2020-2021 academic year is now closed. Information about scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year will be available in January 2021.
