Admissions Scholarships

College Scholars Award

The College Scholars Award provides full-tuition scholarships to graduating students from Ulster county high schools, or to graduating high school students who are residents of Ulster County who rank in the top 10% of their graduating class.

This award is combined with all other financial aid awards and any additional Ulster Community College Foundation, Inc. scholarships to guarantee full tuition. The scholarship is good for two consecutive semesters of full-time study and does not cover fees or books. After completing a full academic year at SUNY Ulster and maintaining a 3.3 cumulative average, the student may be eligible for second-year College Scholars funding at SUNY Ulster.

Eligible applicants must:

  • Be accepted into full-time study at SUNY Ulster.
  • Graduate from an Ulster County high school or be a resident of Ulster County and graduate in the same year of application to SUNY Ulster and attend no other college or university.
  • Receive a NYS Regents Diploma.
  • Apply for Federal and state financial aid and provide all award certificates to SUNY Ulster's Financial Aid Office.
  • Complete the Foundation Scholarship Application
