Financial Aid


SUNY Oswego provides millions of dollars of merit and need-based scholarships to help you pursue your education on our lakeside campus.

  • Over $4 million in Merit Scholarships reward incoming students with high achievement and potential.  
  • Oswego Foundation Scholarships, many funded by generous donors, support outstanding current students.
  • Possibility Scholarships help New York state students who otherwise would not be able to afford science and technology degrees.
  • Army ROTC and Air Force ROTC programs are available with area partner schools.
  • The FastWeb scholarship search page and free search engines let you know what else is available. We believe students and families should not have to pay for any service related to applying for and receiving financial aid, so beware of those who charge for services.
