Students may elect to submit SAT/ACT scores as part of their application. If students apply without either exam, they are still eligible for these merit scholarships. Test optional applicants must meet GPA requirements while the Admissions Committee will review each applicant using a holistic process. Holistic review includes review of Core GPA, Regents (if available), Extra-curricular involvement, and essay.

Please note: These scholarships cannot be combined with one another, nor can they be combined with the Honors College (Prometheus) Scholarship. However, out-of-state students who are awarded the Recognition Scholarship can also receive the Gold, Green or Prometheus Scholarship as long as the student meets the academic requirements for one of those awards. FAFSA and/or TAP applications are also required to receive these awards.

Scholar Recognition Award for Out-of-State Students

This award for first year students from outside New York State is valued at $4,000 a year. Students must have earned at least a 90 average on a 100-point scale or the appropriate equivalent, and will be considered holistically for full consideration. On-campus residency is required, full-time status (30 credits per year), and a 3.25 Institutional GPA are required to maintain the award for three additional years. The Recognition Scholarship can also receive the Gold, Green or Prometheus Scholarship as long as the student meets the academic requirements for one of those awards.
