Scholarships

Mercy College is pleased to announce that the generosity of our many donors and friends will make it possible to support Mercy College students with charitably-funded scholarships in excess of $490,000 during the 2016-17 academic year. 

There will be two scholarship rounds in the coming academic year.

First Round April 1 May 13 Fall/Spring/Summer
Second Round September 30 TBA Spring/Summer

Scholarships awarded will be divided by the Mercy College Financial Aid Office across all semesters enrolled. If you will graduate from your current program of study before the end of the year, your scholarship will be divided across the semesters anticipated for completion of your degree. Scholarship awards in excess of tuition expenses will not be reimbursed to the recipient. Unused scholarship money is not carried forward into the next academic year.

The scholarship application process is currently being revised to create a more streamlined process.  Scholarship applications will open on September 30, 2016. Please check back for additional information. 

If you are selected as a recipient of a scholarship, you will be expected to agree in advance that the College may publicly disclose your receipt of a scholarship as part of our recognition program for students and donors. This expectation can be overridden if you notify the scholarship contact within one week (7 days) of receipt of your scholarship award letter.
