Foundation Tuition Scholarship Program

The Herkimer County College Foundation funds the Foundation Tuition Scholarship Program through the generosity of donors and fundraising efforts such as the annual Arts and Crafts Fair.

Students who reside in Herkimer County and graduate from a Herkimer County high school in the top 15 percent of their class may be eligible for the Herkimer County College Foundation Tuition Scholarship. A limited number of scholarships are available for non-resident Herkimer County high school graduates. Recipients of the Foundation Tuition Scholarship must use the scholarship beginning in the semester immediately following high school graduation.

Recipients will receive full resident tuition less any aid received from the Federal Pell Grant, New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and other scholarships or grants designated for tuition for the first two semesters. The scholarship is renewable contingent upon maintaining eligibility. For the third and fourth semesters, recipients who maintain eligibility will receive 50 percent of resident tuition, less any aid received from the Federal Pell Grant, New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and other scholarships or grants designated for tuition.

More information is available from high school guidance offices or the Herkimer College Financial Aid Office at 315-574-4035 or finaid@herkimer.edu.
