Designated and Endowed Scholarships
A number of scholarship funds have been established at Dowling College through the generosity of alumni, friends, corporations and foundations. These scholarships are awarded annually according to the various criteria established by the donor. Renewal of these scholarships may vary with the condition established for that particular award.
Guidelines for the majority of designated and endowed scholarships require that the recipient demonstrate financial need. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to establish need and eligibility for scholarship programs. The priority deadline for all students is April 30 for the Fall semester and November 30 for the Winter/Spring semester.
Selection of recipients is based upon the highest level of academic grade accomplishment and, where applicable, the greatest financial need and student participation in college-sponsored activities.
Scholarships awarded at full tuition for full-time study allow for up to 30 credits for an academic year (September through May). All designated and endowed scholarship awards are based upon available funding. Scholarships are awarded on an annual basis and are contingent upon maintaining the criteria described. They are not automatically renewable. Students will need to re-apply each year.
