The vast majority of scholarships will be awarded to matriculated students based on need. Each application will be evaluated using an institutional methodology designed to determine level of need. Students will be considered eligible once the FAFSA is complete along with the Supplemental Data Questionnaire. For additional information regarding the application process, please review our financial aid application process.
Students are encouraged to explore external scholarship opportunities. The opportunities often require a separate application and are not administered through the Office of Student Finance or Hofstra University. It is important to note that in addition to independent application processes, deadlines also vary. Please click below for full details:
