Additional Information

Scholarships for Academic Excellence are awarded to outstanding graduates from registered New York State high schools. Award selection is based on the student's academic profile as determined by state exams. The award calculation is based on the ratio of total students graduating from each high school in New York State as compared to the total number of students who graduated during the prior school year. Each scholarship winner will be selected by his/her high school based on academic excellence as measured by scores on Regents examinations taken prior to his/her senior year. The five subject areas are the following: comprehensive English, global studies, U.S. history/government, mathematics, and science. Non-public schools not offering the Regents examinations in these subject areas may base awards on rank in class.
