Receiving Scholarship Money
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 funds for the Extraordinary Academic Scholarship Program 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.
For specific information about your scholarship or financial aid package, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
Extraordinary Academic Scholarship Program
The Extraordinary Academic Scholarship Program grants scholarships to entering first-time freshmen. The College will award these scholarships as students (including international students) are accepted for fall admission. No separate application or essay is required. The College reserves the right to limit the number of awards based on date of acceptance and other criteria.
Students who are selected for the Extraordinary Academic Scholarship Program must be first-time freshman students entering from high school who meet the high school average and SAT or ACT requirements to qualify.
This award is to be applied as a partial room waiver to assist students in meeting their non-tuition expenses.

Foundation Scholarship Office
Scholarships from the Brockport Foundation are created by donors to Brockport. These donors are alumni, friends, faculty, emeriti, staff and parents who share the goal of making an exceptional Brockport education available to a wide range of students.
Students need to complete an application for any of the more than 350 Brockport Foundation scholarships. The application requires an essay, a résumé and a reference. Students who complete the application process are automatically matched with scholarship opportunities for which they qualify. Based on their answers to questions, they may receive recommendations for additional scholarships. These additional scholarships have additional criteria, such as a question about future plans, an additional essay, an additional reference or similar information.
