Students are responsible for honoring deadlines established by each scholarship. If supplemental materials are required to complete a scholarship application (i.e. transcripts, letters of recommendation), the form for supplemental materials must be filled out and handed to Mrs. Kelly or Mrs. Reynolds well before the scholarship deadline to allow for processing. An addressed envelope (including postage) must be provided by the student. Click here for the supplemental materials form or see the Counseling Department.
New York State Excelsior Scholarships
This scholarship provides free tuition for all SUNY and CUNY schools, including Rockland Community College and other community colleges, for New York State residents. Students who receive the scholarship must live and, if employed, work in New York State for the number of years equal to the number of years the award was received, or their scholarships will be converted to loans. Full details are available on the New York State Higher Education Services Corporation web site.
Scholarship Safety Tool
Our Counseling Department carefully vets local scholarships for which information is shared (below) each spring. However, students and parents also look for scholarships on their own. Safety.com has a useful resource to help families assess whether “scholarship opportunities” they find online are legitimate.
