Student Resources

York College Scholarships provided students with the right resources by informing and assisting on how and where to go to look for scholarships.

These scholarships have few applicants, but upon deciding that you would like to apply for scholarships, you need to research. “READ EVERYTHING”….. Keep in mind that there are many links to different scholarships. This process of researching maybe stressful, so we came up with some ideas to help with the process. Click on "Quick Tips" to help you get started and guide you along the way. If you have any questions you can visit our FAQ’s page or email us at scholarships@york.cuny.edu.

Please Note: When applying to Scholarships outside of York College their screening process is different from ours. We are only in charge of York College Scholarships and applications. If however,  you have been accepted to one of the scholarships outside of York College, the money would be sent to the college to be allocated or to the student to be disbursed for their tuition. Our office will then be notified that you received a scholarship. Please keep in mind that the criteria's and deadlines may change every year or every other semester as well as the Application process. Therefore, you must read it carefully and see if you meet the requirements for that scholarship and follow the directions for each one you apply for. “Please be aware of scams."

You can apply to as many scholarships as you like by going to our Scholarship Calendarfor upcoming Scholarships or subscribe to us at Scholarship Subscription. Usually scholarships are given for the school year, so you must apply for the scholarships before the academic year. Allow yourself enough time to research, do all the required attached paperwork and have it proof read before sending.

“Good Luck”
