2018 Scholarships for Academic Excellence (SAE) – Updated Information

2018 Scholarships for Academic Excellence (SAE) – Updated Information

The Scholarships for Academic Excellence affords financial support to top students graduating in June 2018 from New York State high schools. We anticipate having 2,000 scholarships available valued at $1,500 and 6,000 scholarships available valued at $500.

The Scholarships for Academic Excellence information was forwarded to all registered New York State high schools (over 1,800) in September – The Scholarships for Academic Excellence

Unfortunately, every year over 1,000 scholarships go unused due to nominations not being submitted, submitted incorrectly, or submitted past the deadline. This year we want to cut this number in half.

To date we have received nominations from approximately 772 schools, which is less than half of the possible 1882.

The SAE deadline date has been extended to – Friday, March 9, 2018.
