College Isn’t Free. Scholarships Can Help.

New York City College of Technology offers a variety of scholarships to entering freshmen, continuing and transfer students. Many of these scholarships are based on academic merit and/or financial need.

Students who wish to be considered for need based scholarships must file the current year's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) www.fafsa.gov. Receipt of a scholarship may affect the amount of state or federal aid for which you may be eligible.

All scholarships and awards are subject to financial availability. If you have scholarship questions you can stop by the Office of Scholarships and Residency Services in Namm Ground 09, call 718.260.5054 or e-mail scholarshipsvcs@citytech.cuny.edu

The online scholarship application is now available for the 2014-2015 academic year.
