A handful of prestigious, full tuition scholarships remain available for students planning to study in SUNY Canton’s four-year engineering technology programs.
In 2010, the College received a National Science Foundation grant to provide 18 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Scholarships. There are several STEM scholarships left for the Fall 2011 semester. Each scholarship provides students with $7,200 a year, or $28,800 over four years. Annual tuition for bachelor’s degree programs at SUNY Canton is $4,970 for New York State residents.
In order to be eligible, applicants must be accepted into one of several SUNY Canton Canino School of Engineering Technology programs and be able to provide: proof of U.S. Citizenship or permanent residency; a transcript with Regents exam scores of 80 percent or higher, or a transfer GPA of 3.0; and household financial records.
Additionally, applicants will need two letters of recommendation and will need to author a 500-word essay. The scholarships will be awarded to qualified applicants until all remaining slots are filled. Students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible upon acceptance into a qualified program.
Graduates of the College’s engineering technology programs are among the most sought-after employees. The Canino School of Engineering Technology offers a low student to faculty ratio with hands-on access to advanced laboratories and learning facilities.
