Did You Know?! Applications for fall 2022 and spring 2023 scholarships are being accepted! Don’t forget to apply early!


SUNY Empire State College has over 175 institutional scholarship opportunities for our students. For most of our scholarships, students are auto-matched based on the information submitted in the application and contained in the student record.  This means you can submit one general application for scholarships to be considered for most.  Visit to access the SUNY Empire State College Foundation Application for Scholarships tool and to apply.  Answer all required questions and hit “Save and Submit” at the bottom of the page to submit your application.    

One academic reference is required. You should ask a faculty member at any institution who is familiar with your academic work, or a personal or professional reference who can speak to your reasons for pursuing a degree.  A second reference is optional but not required.  There are also a handful of scholarships available on ESCFAST in which students must submit additional information and apply to these opportunities.  Both part-time and full-time scholarships are available. Apply now!
