Statement on Excelsior Scholarship Program Growth

News Briefs
Students at graduation

Onondaga Community College welcomes the expansion of the Excelsior Scholarship Program to support the academic aspirations of students across New York State. For first-generation college students in particular, the majority of whom are served by community colleges, college affordability is a significant barrier to degree progression, persistence, and completion. Opportunities to address these barriers through much-needed public investment of grant and scholarship dollars help to address this national concern of students, families, and the institutions that serve them.
