  • Scholarships

    For scholarship information, please contact The Foundation at (716) 851-1990. Scholarship information is also available at each campus Financial Aid Office. Your FAFSA and HESC applications must be completed for Pell and TAP awards before scholarship applications will be considered.

    Many of your questions regarding the new Excelsior Scholarship can be answered at Excelsior Scholarship FAQs.

    1. Prepare to Apply for Scholarships

      Prepare two short answers, of approximately 250 words each, one describing your educational goals and career aspirations, the other explaining why you feel you should receive a scholarship. It is best to create these documents using Microsoft Word or a similar word editing program, then cut and paste the essay into your application. You may use the English Skills Center to assist you in writing your answers.
    2. Review & Apply for Scholarship Opportunities

      Register at ECC Foundation Scholarships by logging in with your ECC username and password and completing the general application. Then select any scholarship opportunities for which you qualify.
    3. Accept Awards and Write Thank You Letters

      Awards and denials will be posted on ECC Foundation Scholarships in mid-March. To accept an award, log onto your account and select the appropriate action.
    4. Attend Luncheon

      All recipients of awards are requested to attend the Scholarship Luncheon held in April.
