Scholarships

We know that financial aid is one of the most important factors in our students’ decisions to attend SUNY Cobleskill. This is why we are reaffirming our dedication to removing barriers for our applicants by offering up to $1 million in scholarship awards to new students and transfer students in the Spring and Fall 2021 semesters. This represents the largest annual award total in our history.

Whether you are coming in as a freshman, a transfer, or returning to the classroom after some time away, it’s very likely that you will be eligible for a scholarship or grant through the College. This is in addition to other federal and state aid for which you might be eligible, representing thousands in savings on top of SUNY’s competitive tuition rates.

Our goal is to make SUNY Cobleskill affordable and accessible to all who want to grow, sustain, and renew with us. We invite you to explore our scholarship opportunities below and contact our Admissions Office to discuss the next steps in your admissions application process.
