What is the Application Deadline?

There is no firm application deadline. Those who wish to apply for a School of Education Scholarship should apply by January 15 for the following summer or fall semester (scholarship questions should be directed to Angela Flanagan at 315-443-4754). We also suggest this deadline for others, although applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Applications are considered for Fall, Spring or Summer, although a summer or fall start is suggested for full-time students.
