Scholarship research takes time. Early contact with the college is most important. You need to plan ahead as most scholarships require an application process and have very strict deadlines.
Scholarship assistance for transfer graduates is available at many four-year colleges and universities. The scholarship criteria and application process will vary. Some scholarships will require an essay, a resume or perhaps an interview. A partial listing of four-year colleges offering transfer scholarships is available in the Transfer Scholarship booklet in the Counseling Office. To request a copy contact the Counseling Office at (315) 866-0300, ext. 8284
