Merit-based scholarships for full-time freshmen
Queens College values top students. Are you in or near the top 10 percent of your high school class? Did you take a demanding program including English, math, a foreign language, and lab sciences? Do you have SAT scores of at least 1250? You may be eligible for a Queens College Scholarship. These highly competitive awards, available only to full-time freshmen, cover up to half the tuition for New York State residents (currently $6,030 per year).
Scholarship recipients are enrolled in the Queens College Honors Experience, a challenging two-semester sequence of courses in English, history, and philosophy. To build on this background, students are encouraged to apply for honors programs in their second semester of freshman year or their first semester of sophomore year. With continued high academic achievement, most scholarships are renewable.
Interested? Please apply to the CUNY Wiliam E. Macaulay Honors College. If you're interested only in Scholars, have your guidance counselor send an email to Dr. Ross Wheeler.
