Scholarships and Funded Awards

Nearly every Hartwick student, every Hartwick family, needs some degree of financial assistance to take advantage of the wealth of opportunities that the College offers.

Conducting collaborative research with professors, testing new topics across the liberal arts, finding self-expression in the art or music studio, landing an internship, studying abroad – these experiences and more are only possible when students can afford to come to Hartwick and when they can afford to stay.

Throughout the history of the College, generous donors have made annual and endowed gifts in support of the student experience. Currently funded scholarships and awards are described here, followed by scholarships planned for the future either through a bequest or a fund building to a permanent endowment.
