Web Application

Welcome to the online application for the Enhanced Tuition Awards program.

This application is for students looking to receive a first-time award for the 2024-25 academic year.

Applicants who first enrolled in college prior to 2021 (prior to 2020 if in an approved 5-year program or in an opportunity program) are not eligible for an Enhanced Tuition Award and should not submit an application. Visit www.hesc.ny.gov to learn the other NYS scholarships that may be available.

Please note: if you are already a recipient of an Enhanced Tuition Award from a previous application period, you do not need to complete this application. You are a recipient if you signed and submitted the Enhanced Tuition Awards contract, even if you did not receive payment in the prior year.

The full list of eligibility requirements can be found at www.hesc.ny.gov/pay-for-college/financial-aid/types-of-financial-aid/nys-grants-scholarships-awards/enhanced-tuition-awards.html.
