Students are encouraged to seek funding from federal and/or state scholarship programs, such as those available to veterans, as well as awards from the New York State Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC). For more information, please contact New York State HESC at 888-697-4372 or check the HESC website.  A listing of grant opportunities for New York residents can be found on their website. If you are not a resident of New York, you may wish to contact your state government for possible scholarship programs, though these usually are intended for students attending schools within that same state.
