Dear Students,

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.

Eija Ayravainen
Vice President for Student Affairs
