An Academic Achievement Scholarship Program is available for freshmen who are applying to Lehman College. Scholarships from $1,000 to a maximum of $4,000 per year are available to new students entering in the Fall semester. All freshmen who are admitted to Lehman are considered for Academic Achievement Awards. No separate application to the Scholarship Program is necessary for freshmen to be considered for the Award.
The selection process is competitive, and awards are made on the basis of an outstanding academic record. Freshman students are evaluated on the strength of their high school record and their score on the SATs.
The award is renewable for up to four years of full-time undergraduate study. With Lehman's full-time annual tuition of $4,000 a year, this scholarship, in combination with the New York City Merit Scholarship Award, the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP), and the Federal Pell Grant, should provide many students with the opportunity to complete their bachelor's degrees virtually free of charge and permit family education funds to be reserved for graduate and professional studies.
Potential recipients must file a City University Freshman Application and list Lehman as a college choice. The filing deadline for Fall semester consideration is in mid-March. Only those students who have been admitted to Lehman are considered for these awards.
