Up to $5,500 annually. Excelsior Scholarships may be renewable for up to two years of study leading to an Associate's Degree, or four years of study leading to an Bachelor's degree, or up to five years for undergraduate programs that typically take five years of study to complete (such as architecture). Awards are not automatically renewable and students must apply for each year they wish to receive funding.

The Excelsior Scholarship Program was established in 2017 for the purpose of making college and university affordable for New York State students who have demonstrated financial need. Students must agree to continue living and working in New York State for at least as many years as they received the scholarship. Failure to do so may result in the scholarship being retroactively converted to a loan requiring repayment.
Applications for the Excelsior Scholarship Program and additional information about the program is available online at the New York State Higher Education Services Corporation website. To apply for t ... sign up for full scholarship deadline information.
