Alumni Association Scholarship

Supporting our Legacy Students

For more than 30 years, the Alumni Association has recognized the special relationship that exists when different generations of the same family are represented at York College. During that time, more than 450 students have received Alumni Association Scholarships. 

Scholarships applications will be available January 1, and any student with an alumnus/alumna relative (both current students and incoming students for Fall 2018) are eligible to apply. Applications are due by March 30, 2018. All applicants must meet the criteria below to be considered for an Alumni Association Scholarship. Scholarship amounts vary on a yearly basis.

Please carefully read the application instructions and criteria below.
