Queens College Foundation Internal Scholarship - This group of scholarships varies from semester to semester, in accordance with available funding. All of these awards are for full-time students*, granted on the basis of academic performance and financial need (as per the FAFSA – Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Scholarship applicants must file the FAFSA for the academic year in which they are applying for an award. Additionally, two letters of recommendation are required. Students will be evaluated for all awards in this category for which they fulfill the requirements (i.e., GPA, major, financial need – if required, class standing). Amounts vary from $250 to $2,500. The deadline is March 10 to be considered for a fall scholarship and October 10 to be considered for a spring scholarship. There are no summer scholarships.

The Eleanor Dieckmann Picken Scholarship for Study Abroad was established by Dr. Robert Picken in memory of his wife. Two letters of recommendation are required. Students must file FAFSA, too. There is no specific due date for this award; applications are considered on a rolling basis. However, students should allow approximately two months prior to their departure for application review. The program should be a CUNY-approved study abroad program. Consult with the Study Abroad Office (Kiely 183) about this and about your possible eligibility for the STOCS award (a CUNY study abroad scholarship). Students must file a permit with the Registrar to study abroad and submit a copy of that approval to the Office of Honors and Scholarships, along with a copy of an acceptance letter to the study abroad program.

The deadline for A/AC scholarship applications, including two faculty recommendations is January 30, 2015.
