Endowed Scholarships

Applications for AY2018-2019 scholarships are now closed. Applications for AY2019-2020 scholarships will be released early in the Spring 2019 semester.

School of Business students who meet the necessary criteria are encouraged to apply for the following endowed scholarships. As stated in the undergraduate catalog, awards are based primarily on academic performance. Please read all instructions carefully before completing applications. Please note that as these endowed scholarships will be awarded for the 2018-2019 academic year, recipients must be enrolled at Ithaca College for AY18-19.

Many of our endowed scholarships are need-based, meaning students must be eligible for financial aid. We encourage students to check their eligibility with the Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) before applying for need-based scholarships.


Filing on time is very important; if you do not file by the priority deadline, you may not be considered as a primary candidate for some scholarships. For assistance in applying for aid, please contact Student Financial Services.

For more information on specific scholarship background or eligibility requirements, please visit: School of Business Named Scholarships. Scholarship recipients will be asked to write a thank you letter to the donor of each award, so please be sure to familiarize yourself with the background of the scholarship you are applying for.


  • Students are responsible for checking their eligibility and making sure they meet all criteria for each scholarship (financial aid, GPA, county of residence, etc.) before applying. Incomplete or ineligible applications may not be considered.
  • All applications must be typed, printed, and signed. No electronic or handwritten copies will be accepted. [Note: If you are currently studying abroad, please contact Maria for instructions on submitting applications.]
  • For each scholarship, each application must be submitted separately with any necessary requirements (resume, recommendation, etc.) attached to each application. Do not re-use applications from previous academic years. Current forms are available through this site.
  • Submit all applications to the Administrative and Financial Operations Manager, 305 Park Center (School of Business).
  • All applications must be submitted by 3:00pm on Friday, March 9, 2018. Applications will not be accepted after this date.
  • Any questions regarding the application process can be directed to: Maria Haner, Administrative and Financial Operations Manager, 305 Park Center, Email: mhaner@ithaca.edu, Phone: (607) 274-3341.

Recipient Notification

  • All scholarship awardees will be notified by letter on or after June 1, 2018. You may receive word of your award from the Office of Student Financial Services first, but your letter from the dean's office will contain instructions for writing a thank you letter to your award's donor. Please note that non-recipients will not be notified.
  • For awards based on financial need, the amount of the award is determined by the Office of Student Financial Services depending on the availability of funds and on recommendations from the dean and/or faculty.
  • It is imperative that recipients write a thank you letter or note to the donor of the award; failure to do so may disqualify your eligibility for future awards.
