5. How long does it take for the scholarship to be applied to my account each semester?
Recipients of the scholarship will receive a positive “Do Not Cancel” indicator on their CUNYFirst account while the records are reviewed to make sure you have met all of the requirements.

While you wait for us to review your record, please pay your bill minus your scholarship amount. If for some reason you do not meet the requirements to continue receiving your scholarship, you will be responsible for the balance.

7. Do I have to reapply to receive the scholarship each semester?
No. You do not have to reapply for your scholarship each semester.
