I would love to represent the New York State HESC Tuition Assistance Program, I need the extra help with paying for housing and books and food. I'm trying to reduce my cost so that I will have less loans when I leave college, and I'll also be looking at work-study program to help reduce costs. Every little bit will help me, thank you.

I need to scholarship as an urban youth trying to change the trajectory I am expected to follow . I really need something that will help lower the cost of my education

I need this scholarship because i want the best education opportunity and looking forward in pursuing sports management. My mother has worked her hardest to give me the very best education and stay on top of my academics. With that said, i have been on honor roll throughout elementary, junior high and now high school going to finish off with a 4.0 gpa. My drive is to learn but i know my mom cant afford the high tuition cost. Maintaining grades is not a problem i just want to just simply learn and be successful in this field and to make her prouder than she is.

I need this scholarship to continue my education upstate in Buffalo. I really want to continue going to my dream school but I can't with the debt that left.

Megan Dawang  on 4/16/2020 11:57:55 AM

I have not honestly applied for no grants or scholarships but I'm planning on applying for this one to see if I can get help financially in order to pay my tuition for college and finish my studies without getting into debt.

Sean Kelly  on 3/29/2020 3:46:46 PM

I love to learn and it would be a dream come true to not have college be a financial burden on myself or my parents. I have passion and persistence. I am a hard worker and will give college 110%.

Carlton H  on 1/1/2020 8:57:36 PM

I need this scholarship to pursue my aspirations. My parents can not afford to send me to Eastman, borrowing 30,000 per year.

I need this scholarship to pursue my aspirations.

Jonathan V  on 12/1/2019 11:25:09 AM

I'm applying to become an architectural designer. But most importantly, if I get into a great university I want to be sure my parents are financially stable over anything else.

Francis P  on 11/19/2019 5:47:50 PM

I am eligible for this scholarship but, I don't have an invitation from FAFSA to apply for TAP which makes it impossible to apply for it. Does someone know any solution?

Marian Winter  on 6/21/2019 4:50:36 PM

My son graduated this spring with his bachelor's degree and going for his master's degree in criminal justice. Can he apply for this scholarship?

Sana I  on 12/7/2018 5:40:40 PM

It says I need to have graduated, what if I’m graduating this year from high school, can I still apply?

Yelena K  on 4/20/2011 1:45:52 AM

Elisabeth S  on 1/14/2011 10:03:06 AM

I won this :) If you are a New York resident going into a New York school, this program is for you! All you need to do is fill out your FAFSA. My EFC was pretty high, but they still managed to give me some money.
