Information Regarding the Application Process

Students apply during their senior year. In order to do so they will create an account using the Regents’ Scholarship Portal. The application for the class of 2018 will open November 15, 2017. The priority deadline is December 8, 2017.  The final deadline to apply is February 1, 2018.

The student’s application will be reviewed to determine if the student is on-track to earn the scholarship. All students will be notified of their status through their Regents’ Scholarship account in their Message Center no later than May 1, 2018. If you do not receive a notice by this point in time contact our office. If a student is identified as being on-track, they are required to submit verification documents by July 2, 2018. Verification documents provide the necessary information to determine if the student has in fact met all requirements of the scholarship by the time they graduate from high school. Additional information regarding the application process will be provided once the application opens.
