Excelsior Scholarship Launches
Announced in April 2017, the Excelsior Scholarship will provide eligible New York State resident students up to $5,500 annually for assistance with tuition. The scholarship is being phased in over three years, beginning in fall 2017 for New Yorkers making up to $100,000 annually, increasing to $110,000 in 2018, and reaching $125,000 in 2019.
In collaboration with the NYS Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC) and SBU's Student Accounts staff, our offices of Financial Aid & Scholarship Services and the Registrar have worked dilligently to coordinate application reviews and administration of the scholarship. We applaud the hard work of so many at SBU to help make college more affordable for our students.
