Governor Cuomo has announced that the Excelsior Scholarship program is taking applicants for the 2018-19 academic year.
According to a press release, the program- which is open to SUNY and CUNY students whose families make up to $110,000 annually- became available to apply for on Monday morning.
Current Excelsior Scholarship recipients do not need to complete the application if they received an award in fall 2017 or after.
According to the State, to be eligible for an Excelsior Scholarship, students must be New York State residents, plan to attend a SUNY or CUNY two- or four-year college, take 30 credits per year (including Summer and Winter sessions), and be on track to graduate on time with an Associate's Degree in two years or a Bachelor's Degree in four years. For the 2018-19 academic year, household federal adjusted gross income can total up to $110,000 to be eligible. In 2019-20 and beyond, New York State families can earn up to $125,000. Recipients must also plan to live in New York State for the length of time they received the award.
