The Empire State Diversity Honors Scholarship (ESDHS) Program was established for New York State residents who must be U.S. citizens or permanent resident aliens who make a contribution to the diversity of the school’s student body, and who have overcome a disadvantage or other impediment to success in higher education. Students must be enrolled in a degree program and demonstrate high academic achievement. They also must have submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2015-2016 school year.
Freshman applicants must have a high school average of 80 to qualify, and returning students must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. In order to be considered, you must submit this application to the Financial Aids Office no later than December 15, 2015. Submission of an application is not a guarantee that you will receive an award.
