SUNY Sullivan’s Presidential Scholars program makes a college education more accessible and more affordable for high-achieving students graduating from Sullivan County high schools.
Students with a minimum overall grade average of 90 are eligible to receive the scholarship. The Presidential Scholars program, first introduced in 2012, funds up to full tuition and fees for two years at SUNY Sullivan.
Recipients must be in the graduating class preceding the start of their first fall semester of study and plan to attend the college full time.
The Presidential Scholars program awards a maximum continuous two-year scholarship for the fall and spring semesters. No gaps in study are permitted, and qualifying students must apply for financial aid to be considered for the award. Continuation as a Presidential Scholar is based upon the achievement of an overall 3.25 GPA for the first year of study.
Sullivan County students should contact their high school guidance counselors for a copy of the Presidential Scholars application, which much be submitted in addition to the application requirements of SUNY Sullivan.
Presidential Scholars are also welcome to apply to the Honors Program for the opportunity to make an impact in Sullivan County and connect with like-minded students.
