Welcome to the Scholarship Center

York College's Scholarship Webpage provides information to students looking for scholarships. It offers many scholarship options for ambitious and academically-talented students. It envisions service to a student body that reflects the high academic achievement, cultural diversity and richness of York College. It instills the behaviors of awareness, investigation and realization that promote the ideas of scholarly and individual development.

Each scholarship has a list of eligibility; therefore you need to read and see if you meet the minimum requirements for that scholarship.

The process may be stressful, so we have a list of search engines for scholarships available on the website. After you have a list of scholarships you wish to apply for, there are additional steps you need to take for the application process.

  1. You need to fill out the scholarship application
  2. Obtain two letters of recommendation (preferably from a professor)
  3. Write a personal statement essay
  4. Create a resume
  5. Obtain a copy of your transcript

Usually, scholarships are given for the school year, so you must apply for scholarships before the academic year begins in the fall. Allow yourself enough time to research, gather all the required paperwork, and apply for the scholarships.
