Our Opportunities

The SUNY New Paltz Foundation scholarship portal is ACCEPTING GENERAL APPLICATIONS on January 15th for scholarships disbursed in the 2023-2024 academic year!

All students, including new incoming students, should complete the General Application and if prompted a conditional application for the upcoming aid year starting March 1, 2023, and for all other available scholarship opportunities for the 2023-2024 aid year.

All currently enrolled students may sign into SUNY New Paltz Foundation’s Scholarship Portal with your newpaltz.edu email and password.

All new incoming students for Summer 2023 or Fall 2023 should complete the General Application and conditional application starting March 1, 2023, for any available recruitment scholarships. (Note: awards may be offered as late as the first week of school and are very limited in number)

HOW TO APPLY
Your first step is to complete a General Application. Your responses may prompt a request for you to complete a Conditional Application or recommend opportunities with additional scholarship specific questions.

Upon completion of the General Application, you will be presented with a conditional application that will direct you to funds for a specific purpose (i.e. new students, education majors, etc.) or you will be presented with Recommended Opportunities. Look over these scholarships to see if you are eligible and then Apply To eligible opportunities.
For existing students, it is strongly recommended that you do not rely exclusively on the system’s Auto-Match and the populated Recommended Opportunities. Many scholarships require additional information to be submitted after the completion of the General Application, some of which (like community service, clubs, etc.) is not found in your data and you will need to answer questions to be eligible.

Go to OPPORUNITIES and then click on the “Ours” tab to see the full list of scholarships opportunities. Please read the scholarship descriptions carefully to determine if you might qualify for any additional scholarships. Several of the scholarships listed on the “Ours” tab require no further action from you to apply (those listed with “None required”).

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Most the Foundation’s Scholarships opportunities are open for application between March and April for funding for the next academic year. Some dates will vary for specific opportunities, so please check when applying.
The General Application will open in January and close on December 15 @ 11:59 pm. EST. Once it is completed during this cycle, you can edit but you do not have to take this step again.
Edits to existing and closed opportunity applications will not be accepted after the scholarship’s stated deadline. Deadlines are 11:59 PM on the posted date. All application materials, including reference letters must be submitted on time to be considered.
Award amounts published are for general information – actual amounts may vary

HOW TO SEARCH
Click on the Show Filters button to find opportunities by certain attributes, majors, or other scholarship themes. You may search on more than one scope by highlighting one option, holding down “control” or “command” and then highlighting an additional option. Click “Enter” when finished. It is strongly recommended that all students review the GENERAL scholarship category. These funds are not reliant upon a student being a specific major.

Keyword searches should be limited to one word or phrase (ex. engineering). Do not use comma separators or unrelated strings (ex. math, physics; arts and sciences political science).

AWARDING
If you are selected as a scholarship recipient, you will receive an email from npscholarships@newpaltz.edu. This email will provide you the steps you will need to take for the scholarship to be applied to your student account. All email notifications will be sent to your newpaltz.edu email account. If you wish to confirm offers without clicking on a link in an email, please log into the scholarship portal and accept offers from there.
Additional steps will need to be taken to confirm your scholarship. All students will need to complete the acceptance process in the scholarship portal if prompted.
Qualifying for a scholarship is not a guarantee of funding. Even if not specifically stated, scholarships are typically reserved for students in good academic standing who are also making satisfactory progress towards a degree. International students can apply for all scholarship opportunities except where permanent residency in the US is noted.

Any questions can be directed to npscholarships@newpaltz.edu
