LIU Brooklyn Scholarships & Grants
LIU Brooklyn offers a wide variety of scholarship and grant programs, the majority of which are awarded at the time of a student's admission to the campus. These programs provide assistance for tuition charges only (fees are not included). Based on academic achievement (high school averages, SAT scores, rank in class, etc.) and/or on talent and skills, these Campus-funded scholarships are awarded by the campus’ Undergraduate Scholarship Committee.
Recipients of the LIU Brooklyn funded scholarships and grants are advised of their awards in their letter of admissions, sent by the Office of Admissions. Awards also appear on the recipient's financial aid award notice. The terms and conditions of the scholarship or grant awards are outlined in several publications offered by the Office of Integrated Student Financial Services, including the “Guide to Scholarships and Grants,” and the “Financial Aid Guide.”
Endowed Scholarships are available to Undergraduate students. These scholarships are established through the generosity of alumni, friends, corporations and foundations, and are awarded annually based on the criteria set forth by the donor. Many scholarships were created to honor or memorialize a favorite professor, a cherished classmate or a beloved spouse. Endowed Scholarship Application Forms can be obtained from Tom Price, Sophomore Year Program, Pratt 510.
Undergraduate scholarships and grants are available for up to four years or eight semesters, and are only applicable to the undergraduate portion of any DUAL (Dual Degree) or PROF (Pharmacy) degree. All recipients of campus-funded scholarships and grants must comply with the General Guidelines for Undergraduate Scholarships and Grants, outlined in the acadmic bulletin and further clarified on this website.
Recipients of scholarships and grants are required each year to complete the federal government's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Once the Office of Integrated Student Financial Services receives the federal FAFSA information, eligibility for N.Y. State's TAP program and the Federal Pell Grant Program can be determined, and estimates can be provided on the financial aid award notice. These notices also provide estimates of the campus-funded award(s), and any other financial aid available to the student. The Bursar's Office will calculate the exact dollar amount of any scholarship/grant award during the bill clearance process each term.
