The School of Humanities and Sciences awarded 116 students roughly $300,000 in endowed scholarships for the 2021-22 academic year. The majority of endowed scholarships are awarded to high-achieving students who demonstrate financial need. Please note that determination of financial need is made on the basis of each student’s FAFSA. The priority deadline for filing the FAFSA is March 1. If you have questions about your scholarship eligibility as it relates to financial need, please visit the Student Financial Services website or call (607) 274-3131. Students must have a current FAFSA on file with Student Financial Services in order to be considered for scholarships for which financial need is a requirement.
The majority of H&S endowed scholarships are awarded to students enrolled in majors and minors offered by the School of Humanities and Sciences. These scholarships are listed by field. Eligibility criteria and recent award amounts are included in the scholarship descriptions. A few endowed scholarships do not require study in a particular H&S field or affiliation with a particular program. Descriptions of these general H&S scholarships include eligibility criteria and recent award amounts (where available).
Students are encouraged to submit statements of interest for scholarships, but are not required to do so. Statements of interest must be submitted by March 10. Students will be notified by email and letter if they have been awarded a scholarship for the upcoming academic year. Award details will be viewable on HomerConnect beginning in late May (or later, pending finalization of awards).
