Process Information

This is a competitive scholarship.  The amount of awards may vary annually based on availability of funds. The scholarship is not transferable to other colleges or universities.  Scholarships are awarded for four semesters (full-time study), eight semesters (part-time study) or a combination of the two. 

Applications will be forwarded to the Workforce Creation Scholarship Committee for review. The committee will award scholarships and notify the Financial Aid Office of awards to be included in the aid packages of all scholarship recipients. The committee will also notify applicants of their status when the award process has been completed. All scholarship recipients will sign a scholarship agreement form. 

The Financial Aid Office will continue to run the Board of Estimates scholarship program to locate additional students eligible for Workforce Creation Scholarships and forward names to the committee for consideration.
