As many as two-thirds of college students who applied for New York's Excelsior Scholarship will not get the award, according to a New York Times report.
The scholarship provides free-tuition to state schools for students whose families make less than $100,000 in salary.
In some cases, the Times reports, it's because their families exceeded the income cap while others didn't qualify because of poor grades. Some applicants took a break in their education, disqualifying them.
