Award Programs

Academic Achievement Awards
Cazenovia College offers a comprehensive Academic Achievement Award Program for new freshmen and transfer students who have attained an associate’s degree. This program supports the College’s belief that freshmen and transfers should be rewarded for the academic accomplishments achieved prior to enrolling at Cazenovia.

All freshmen and qualified transfer students are automatically considered for this program once they have applied for admission. For more information regarding the Academic Achievement Award Program, contact the Admissions Office or visit http://www.cazenovia.edu/admissions/scholarships.

Emerson Scholarships
Emerson Scholarships are available to returning students through the individual academic programs. To be considered for an Emerson Scholarship, each student must complete and submit an Emerson Scholarship Application and provide the requested documentation by the appropriate deadline.

The application is then forwarded to the academic program director for review and consideration. Only one Emerson Scholarship will be awarded per student. The amounts of the Emerson Scholarships range from $1,000 to $1,500 per year. These awards are for one year only and subsequent years require a new application and review.

Cazenovia College is grateful to the Fred L. Emerson Foundation for gifts to establish the Emerson Scholarship Fund.

Cazenovia College Grant
The Cazenovia College Grant Program is need-based funding available to those students who file a FAFSA form. These funds are awarded to students who show promise to succeed and demonstrated financial need.

Student Campus Employment
The College provides on-campus employment for students who need to work but who do not qualify for the Federal College Work Study Program. Placement is based on early application and availability of jobs. The pay rate is the same as that for the Federal Work Study Program. Interested students should contact the College’s Human Resources Office or the Center for Career and Extended Learning.

Tuition Exchange Program and Cazenovia College Tuition Remission Program
Cazenovia College provides scholarships that cover the full cost of tuition minus any NYS TAP or any other College scholarships, if eligible, for the academic year for dependents of Cazenovia College employees and employees of several other postsecondary institutions. Contact the Associate Dean for Financial Aid for further information.

Students qualifying for this funding must file the FAFSA and, in addition, New York State residents the Express TAP application (ETA). Cazenovia College employees must also complete a Tuition Remission/Exchange Form with the College’s Human Resources Office.
