Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students (SDS)

LIU is one of only four institutions in the State of New York to be awarded a multi-year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under its revamped Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students (SDS) program. Our accredited graduate programs in speech-language pathology at LIU Post and LIU Brooklyn were selected for participation based on under-represented minority enrollment and primary-care career placement into medically underserved communities.

This program provides up to $15,000 per academic year in grant aid to qualified full-time students and is renewable if funds are available and program criteria are met. For information about the program’s eligibility requirements and the application process, please visit the Enrollment Services office on your campus or email
