Application Guidelines
Every year, Brooklyn College offers scholarships, awards, and prizes to students who have outstanding records. This is made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends of the college, including the trustees of the Brooklyn College Foundation, Inc., who have helped promote the college's continuing scholastic excellence by establishing various funds. These funds generate more than $1 million in interest annually, which supports the education of qualified students.
This application is only for non-departmental undergraduate scholarships, awards, and prizes and will be evaluated by scholarship committees. For scholarships, awards, and prizes administered by academic departments, consult with the specific department about its selection process.
Scholarship and award amounts vary. They range from partial to full tuition for the academic year. Scholarships and awards are subject to financial availability. The college reserves the right to reduce or rescind the scholarship or award if financial circumstances dictate.
Scholarships may not be deferred. The recipients must use the scholarship and/or award in the year it is given.


Who Is Eligible?
Undergraduate students entering or currently in a degree program may apply for scholarships and awards. All recipients must be in good academic standing with a minimum grade point average of 2.00 for continuing undergraduate students.
CUNY employees receiving a tuition waiver are not eligible for Brooklyn College Foundation scholarships.


To be considered for a general undergraduate scholarship (a scholarship that is not administered by an academic department), you must take the following steps:
*             Complete an application, including the personal statement.
*             File a FAFSA by February 16.
*             Arrange for the submission of two letters of recommendation. If you are a Brooklyn College student, at least one letter must be from a faculty member at Brooklyn College; if you are not a Brooklyn College student, a letter from a teacher familiar with your current or most recent academic work is preferred.
*             Submit an official transcript from your high school or previous college if you are entering Brooklyn College or have been at Brooklyn College for less than one year. If you are a new transfer student with fewer than 24 college credits, you must submit your high school transcript.
*             All supporting documents must include your name and status (e.g., freshman or transfer) at the top of each page.
*             Seniors should complete the continuing student portion of the application and answer all questions relating to graduating seniors so that they may be considered for graduating senior awards. For graduate scholarships, visit your department.
