Types of Aid

Ithaca College participates in a wide variety of aid programs designed to meet the needs of most students. These include Federal, state (such as New York, Vermont, Delaware, and Rhode Island), and our own institutional aid programs. All applicants and continuing students are eligible to apply for aid programs that are available as scholarships, grants, loans, and work. Tax incentives may also apply for some families.

Information about additional public and private sources of scholarships

More information about the sources of additional scholarships can be found online and within your local community. Such local resources include your school’s guidance counselor as well as your local public library. You should aggressively seek out and apply for appropriate scholarships, but be aware that some scholarship search services and databases are only accessible by paying a fee. In addition, some services present scholarships that charge an application fee. Ithaca College does not recommend paying for access to scholarship databases or pursuing for any scholarship that charges an application fee.
