There are scholarship websites and ideas listed at the bottom of the Financial Aid page.
This page will be devoted to scholarship opportunities that are mailed directly to Petrides. Most of them are sent to us after January but we occasionaly receive some earlier. This page will be active and on-going as deadlines pass and new scholarships are created. If you need a copy of your transcript in order to apply and I am not available, see Mr. Olah or Mrs. Troost. Please check back frequently!
You have probably heard about the new Excelsior Scholarship in the state of New York. This provides free tuition for families whose income is less than $125,000 a year. This means that you can attend a CUNY college for free and only have to pay for books and transportation. For the SUNY colleges, you will save the yearly tuition ($7,000) but you still have to pay for room and board (about $14,000) plus another $4,000 for books, transportation, and personal expenses. That will bring the SUNY cost, per year, to about $18,000 instead of $25,000. Go to www.HESC.ny.gov to find the Excelsior Scholarship. It usually opens for one month in June-July at the end of your senior year of high school. You will also find information on STEM scholarships. That site will answer your questions and provide the application.
