The New York State Scholarships for Academic Excellence (SAE) to be awarded in 2024 for the 2023-2024 academic year. Pending the appropriation of State funds during the 2024 session of the New York State Legislature, 8,000 scholarships will be awarded. Of the 8,000 awards, 2,000 scholarships will have a value of $1,500 each and 6,000 scholarships will have a value of $500 each. Winners of this scholarship may concurrently receive any other New York State academic or general award for which he or she may be eligible. However, winners cannot be awarded a Scholarship for Academic Excellence in any amount when the combination of all awards would exceed their cost of attendance. Scholarship winners must attend a college or university (SAE’s cannot be used for trade schools) in New York State. Those who do not attend a college or university in New York State forfeit the award. Cost of attendance includes tuition, required fees, laboratory and other institution-related expenses, books, transportation, and room and board. Awards are renewable for up to four academic years of undergraduate study or five academic years, if the program of study normally requires five years as defined by the Commissioner of Education. In the event that a scholarship is declined by the student or revoked by the Commissioner of Education, its benefits will lapse and no re-awards will be made. The method used to determine winners of the NYS Scholarships for Academic Excellence is rank in class through 6 semesters.
