Alfred State is proud of its commitment to recognize outstanding students by offering numerous scholarships. Since it is the desire of Alfred State to award scholarships to as many students as possible, typically students do not receive more than one scholarship. If a student qualifies for more than one award, the higher-value scholarship will be awarded. Enrollment deposits must be paid by the due date in order to maintain any scholarship awards. When multiple SAT score reports are submitted for scholarship purposes, the exams will be superscored using the highest reading/writing and math scores; ACT exams are not superscored.
The Alfred State Pioneer Award is awarded to academically talented first-time, freshmen entering an associate-degree program. Applicants must be a New York State resident. Specific value will be determined by strength of academic background and funding availability. On-campus study is required on the Alfred or Wellsville campus. This award can be applied to non-tuition expenses (e.g., books and supplies, fees, transportation). No separate application is necessary.
