Scholarships for Undergraduates
CW has provided millions of dollars in merit-based scholarships and need-based grants as an investment in the future of our students and the future of our community.
CW scholarships are based on academic achievement and designed to bring bright, motivated students to the CW Campus. However, you don't have to be a straight-A student to earn a scholarship.

The President’s Scholarship provides half tuition scholarship funds per year based on academic merit (80+ GPA) to high school seniors who are accepted to begin studies at CW in the fall immediately following graduation. Students may not use this scholarship with any other CW scholarship and must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA at the end of each academic semester.
Students who have graduated from high school with an 80% or better cumulative grade point average or who have completed a minimum of at least 24 credits at a prior college with a 3.0 or better GPA evidenced by an official transcript may be awarded up to $5,000 per year. Students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average at the end of each academic semester in order to receive subsequent awards.
Achievement Awards are granted at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee which carefully considers a student’s academic promise and their financial need. Award amounts range up to $8,000 per year. Students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA at the end of each academic semester in order to receive subsequent awards.
The School of Business, Information Technology and Health Professions Scholarships ranging up to $8,000 per year are awarded to students based on prior academic performance (75-79 GPA) and future potential. Students may not use this scholarship with any other CW scholarship. Students must maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA at the end of each academic semester in order to receive subsequent awards.
Students who have received an approved outside scholarship are eligible to have their awards matched by The College of Westchester. Each matching scholarship may not exceed $2,000 per year. If the approved outside scholarship is awarded each year, the matching scholarship will be credited to the student’s account in the same year. If the approved outside scholarship is awarded in the first year only, the matching scholarship will be matched in the student’s second year.
The College makes available a number of institutional grants for new and continuing students. Grants are awarded based on financial need. Special consideration is given to students in critical need of assistance to continue studies. Grants range up to $5,000 per year. Students must re-apply each year. Students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA at the end of each academic semester in order to receive subsequent awards.
The College offers grants to students enrolled in certain programs who are nearing the completion of their studies. CW Program Grants are designed to reward students’ persistence in their program of study.
The College of Westchester Charitable Foundation (CWCF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization which awards scholarships to students who demonstrate academic promise. The Foundation annually invites CW students to submit application for consideration.
