An extraordinary opportunity for exceptional students
The Honors College at The College at Brockport provides endless opportunities for exceptional students like you — we understand your passion for learning and want to give you the tools you need to further your pursuits.
The Prometheus Scholarship is awarded to qualified first-year students every fall semester. For the fall entering class of first-year student Honors students, the Prometheus Scholarship includes an award in the amount of $4,000 and a campus parking pass. Recipients of the Prometheus Scholarship are required to live on campus. First-year recipients must sign up for a living learning community (LLC) selected from over 15 options. First-year recipients who do not indicate their preference for an LLC will be placed in the Honors House.
How to Apply
2018 Prometheus Scholarship Details
Admission to the Honors College is competitive. We seek applicants with a minimum high school GPA of 94 and SAT score of 1310 (ACT 28). However, applications are reviewed holistically, taking into consideration AP courses, co- and extra-curricular activities, and other indicators of student engaged learning. All first-year students admitted to the Honors College in the Fall 2018 semester who are New York State residents are awarded the Prometheus Scholarship in the amount of $4,000 for 2018-19 . The Prometheus Scholarship is a waiver that is applied to room expenses. This non-tuition award will be credited to the recipient’s account to assist with coverage of this on-campus resident expense.
Out-of-state students will receive the combination of the Prometheus Scholarship (valued at $4,000) and the Recognition Award (valued at $4,000) for a total value of $8,000 per year. The scholarship is renewable for up to four years as long as the recipients maintain the Terms of Award.
The Fall 2018 Prometheus Scholarship is the highest award offered by The College at Brockport and cannot be combined with an Extraordinary Academic Scholarship (Green or Gold) offer. If you have previously been offered an Extraordinary Academic Scholarship, your award will be upgraded and increased to reflect the Prometheus Scholarship and your financial aid package will be adjusted accordingly.
