Additional Scholarships

Foundation Scholarships

Scholarships from the Brockport Foundation are created by donors to Brockport. These donors are alumni, friends, faculty, emeriti, staff and parents who share the goal of making an exceptional Brockport education available to a wide range of students.

Students need to complete an application for any of the more than 350 Brockport Foundation scholarships. The application requires an essay, a résumé and a reference. Students who complete the application process are automatically matched with scholarship opportunities for which they qualify. Based on their answers to questions, they may receive recommendations for additional scholarships. These additional scholarships have additional criteria, such as a question about future plans, an additional essay, an additional reference or similar information.

A scholarship or award is a direct grant given by the College itself. It is not related to financial aid programs, such as TAP, Pell grants, loans, or Work-Study, which are applied for through the  FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

Scholarships are automatically credited to the recipient’s student account. However, financial aid received may need to be adjusted due to the receipt of a scholarship or award.
