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

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.

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?

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?

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

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.
