The Hartwick College Founders’ Award

This guaranteed $10,000 per year tuition grant is for students from New York state. Beginning in the fall of 2018, new first-year and new transfer students who are residents of New York will receive this grant each year they remain enrolled at Hartwick College in good academic standing.

Eligibility: There are no eligibility income limits or post-graduation residency requirements.

More information: While Hartwick educates students from every state and dozens of countries, historically 75% of the College’s students hail from New York. Founded in 1797, and as one of the oldest colleges in the nation, Hartwick has deep ties and a commitment to the citizens of New York state.

New students who enroll at Hartwick starting in the fall of 2018, and who remain enrolled and in good academic standing, will receive a $10,000 Founder’s Award for each year of their enrollment. Because Hartwick is committed to experiential education that has a positive, global impact, there are no eligibility income limits or post-graduation residency requirements. Students who enroll in the College’s innovative Three-Year Bachelor’s Degree Program are also eligible for this award.

The Hartwick College Founders’ Award will provide the foundation of each New York state student’s financial aid award. Students may also qualify for additional college grants, scholarships, and other forms of financial aid based upon their eligibility. No special grant application is required; students need simply apply for admission to Hartwick and file the Federal Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). 

The Hartwick College Sibling Grant

This grant discounts tuition for families with multiple students in attendance.

Eligibility: Families with two or more children concurrently enrolled at Hartwick College on a full-time basis.

Terms: For the second child, the tuition is reduced by 25 percent. The total reduction is then divided equally among the siblings, and their tuition charges are reduced accordingly.

The Hartwick College Legacy Grant

This grant awards $2,500 per student at Hartwick.

Eligibility: Students whose grandparent, parent, or sibling graduated from Hartwick College are eligible.
