Applying for Scholarships is easy!

Read what some of our current and former students had to say about SUNY Niagara Scholarships and the online AwardSpring Scholarship System.

Trevor - Nursing


Major: Nursing
Scholarship: SUNY Niagara Foundation Scholarship and Terry Mason Memorial Scholarship

"SUNY Niagara Scholarships have helped me financially because I am not eligible to receive financial aid as a Canadian citizen. The online application process was so easy to navigate and very user-friendly. I received two scholarships the last two semesters. I encourage everyone to apply because unlike student loans, it is money that will not have to be paid back."



Major: Computer Science
Scholarship: Distinguished Student Scholarship

"The Award Spring application process was robust and easy to use, the DSS scholarship has been an enormous help to reduce my college debt and my participation in the volunteer events has taught me a lot about the foundation. SUNY Niagara's computer science program has helped me gain a great deal of experience with computers, programming, and software development, and the instructors have frequently cooperated with me and other hard working students to help us succeed."

Elaine Champagne-Lewis


Major: Human Services
Scholarship: Peter I. Certo Memorial Scholarship, Terry C. Mason Memorial Scholarship, and Niagara County Bicentennial Scholarship

"I chose SUNY Niagara because the alumni spoke so highly of their experiences and the staff was more than helpful in getting me acclimated with my own. I would like to continue my education in Social Work, and try to be of assistance within my community or wherever I am needed."

Olivia Herschell


Major: Chemical Dependency Counseling
Scholarship: Nicole M. Argo Memorial Scholarship

"I chose to attend SUNY Niagara to obtain my degree in Chemical Dependency Counseling in hopes to help many of those whose voices aren't heard. I hope to further my education and become a Licensed Social Worker in the near future."

Jade Li Fruscione


Major: Nursing
Scholarship: Eugene and Maria Munk Scholarship, SUNY Niagara Foundation Scholarship, Barbara Burns Higgins Scholarship, and Smart Start Scholarship

"I chose to attend SUNY Niagara because of its affordability and how close to home it was, which is especially meaningful right now due to COVID-19. I hope to use my nursing degree to provide quality care to patients and give back to the community."
