The College at Brockport awards more than $3 million in scholarships and grants annually to outstanding students thanks to support from our alumni, faculty and friends. Scholarships are awarded to new and continuing students based on academic performance, leadership experience, talent, financial need, and other criteria that are specified by the scholarship donor.
There are several resources for scholarships at The College at Brockport. Below are the offices on campus that provide scholarship assistance.
The Extraordinary Academic Scholarship Program grants scholarships to entering freshmen. The College will automatically award these scholarships as students (including international students) are accepted for fall admission. No separate application or essay is required. Candidates must be first-time freshmen students entering from high school and meet the high school average, class rank and SAT or ACT requirements to qualify. The College awarded more than $1.8 million in 2011-2012 to extraordinary students for excellence in the classroom.
The Brockport Foundation awards over 300 scholarships annually. These scholarship range from departmental to college-wide awards. In 2010-11 the Foundation awarded over $300,000 in scholarships.
There are numerous scholarships and grants available from external corporations and foundations. The STAR Center is a place to research these opportunities available to you.
The College received grants from the National Science Foundation to award scholarships to juniors, seniors and graduate students (BPMACS) majoring in physics, mathematics or computer science. This NSF program provides institutions with funds for student scholarships to encourage and enable the achievement of higher education degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics by talented but financially disadvantaged students.

The US Army has an education program that supersedes all. Ensuring that educated Officers are leading the Army's Soldiers is a primary concern for the Army. To assist its future Officer leaders with college expenses, the Army provides them with ROTC Scholarships.
At Brockport, a scholarship or award is a direct grant given by the College itself. It is not related to aid programs, such as TAP, Pell grants, loans, or Work-Study, which are applied for through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid — FAFSA.
Scholarships are automatically credited to the recipient’s student account. However, financial aid received may need to be adjusted due to the receipt of a scholarship or award. Financial need is determined by an analysis of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).Students should be aware that scholarship funds will not be available until after the expiration of the “Tuition and Fee Liability” period, which is generally at the end of the fourth week of the term. Students should plan their fiscal needs accordingly.
