Future students may not be aware but Nyack College has over 80 endowed scholarship funds and awarded over $9 million in financial awards last year. As we had stated in our previous post called Six Strategies for Paying College Tuition Beyond Loans, students need to think outside of the box when they research grants and scholarships. Our Nyack students should ask about new programs and then extend a search toward public and private organizations as well as paid internships and assistantships (stay tuned for that article: Wednesday night).
At Nyack 95% of our students receive financial aid. If you’re a current student or an incoming Nyack Warrior, get in touch with the Office of Financial Aid and ask about an updated list of awards for eligible students. Also note that specialized grants are available for New York City commuter and Rockland residential students. Since endowment funds are constantly updating, please request more information here about financial aid.
