Students at SUNY Canton have the opportunity to be rewarded for their academic excellence. Every year SUNY Canton awards academic scholarships to students to ease the financial burden of continuing their education. SUNY Canton scholarships open the doors to an education for determined students from various backgrounds.
Scholarships vary in the amount awarded. Certain scholarships may require additional information such as letters of recommendation or essays. Many scholarships have a financial need component. For these scholarships, a student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Please visit www.fafsa.ed.gov to apply for financial aid. The application should be completed as soon as possible after October 1st, in the year prior to when the student will begin classes at SUNY Canton.
