Scholarships

The Scholars Program does not directly award scholarships to students. For information on scholarships, visit the following pages:

Binghamton University Scholarships
External Scholarships (Goldwater, Rhodes, MacArthur and other national scholarships)

Postgraduate Scholarships

Rhodes Scholarships: The Rhodes Scholarships are postgraduate awards supporting exceptional students from diverse countries to study at the University of Oxford. Established in the will of Cecil Rhodes, the Rhodes is the oldest and perhaps the most prestigious international scholarship program in the world. The Rhodes Scholarships aim to nurture leaders for the world's future who are committed to service, and to promote international understanding and peace.

U.S. Student Fulbright grants are available to graduating seniors, recent graduates, and graduate students at all levels. Applicants must be U.S. citizens; hold a BA or BS degree before the start of the grant; and have sufficient language proficiency to carry out the proposed research in the host country.

Other tips

  • Check with your parents about any union, banking, credit union and employer scholarships they may have access to.
  • Visit websites of top high schools near where you live to see what scholarships they offer their students.
  • Contact religious/ethnic organizations, like the local or national Jewish Federation, Polish-American Foundation, etc.
  • Look for scholarships that require essays. Many students do not want to write an essay, so the competition is less intense.
  • Look for organizations on the local, regional, state and national levels.
  • Be aware of deadlines and completeness of scholarship applications.
