WELCOME TO SCHOLARSHIPS & GRANTS
I am delighted to welcome you to Hunter College’s web page regarding scholarship and grant opportunities. On this web page you will find information about a wide variety of funding available through Hunter College and other organizations to eligible students. I encourage you to take full advantage of these funding streams whenever appropriate. It is my hope that you will apply in a timely manner to as many funding sources as possible. Further, if at first you are not selected for an award or grant, I recommend that you apply again in the future as both your eligibility and the fund’s requirements may change over time, or additional funding may become available. Hunter College’s first and foremost goal is to support your academic success and assist you in your goal to graduate from Hunter College. The educational funding programs described below are in place to assist you. I urge you to use them to meet the financial needs of your college career.
I wish you continued success in all your endeavors.

Financial Aid includes federal and state aid, such as the New York State Tuition Assistance Program; some forms of institutional aid; and loans. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine a student’s eligibility for financial aid. To learn more, visit Financial Aid.
The majority of Hunter College scholarship funding is awarded in the spring semester for the following academic year. For example, scholarships distributed for the academic year Fall 2013– Spring 2014 would be awarded in the Spring 2013 semester. Your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) also serves as your application for Hunter College scholarships for the 2013-2014 academic year. No additional forms are needed. To file your FAFSA, please visit www.fafsa.ed.gov.
