Our Opportunities

Queens College is committed to assisting students through scholarships; we provide information about awards available on campus, as well as prestigious national programs. Scholarships may be based on academic merit, financial need, program of study, and student year. At any stage in your education, we encourage you to stop by the office to explore your options and find out how to pursue them.
The scholarship list below highlights the opportunities available through Queens College. Other external scholarships are available on the CUNY website. Apply to all the scholarships for which you qualify and check back to see if additional ones are available. If you do not see a deadline listed, the award may not be available at the moment.

Please use the “Show Filters” button at the top of the page to see a list of opportunities in each department, as well as department contact information if you would like additional details for specific awards.

Please be advised that some opportunities have a second application that you must complete. The additional application will have (an) additional question(s) relevant to that particular award. Therefore, please click on all opportunities that you think you might be eligible for to see if there are additional questions that you must respond to.

Please note that our scholarship review committees will see some of your relevant information as it appears in CUNY First. Please make sure that your data is correct. This information is downloaded once/week so we might not see any changes/updates immediately.

If your QC e-mail account or CAMS account are not set up properly your application cannot be processed. Please make sure that these accounts are set up and that you check your e-mail often.

PLEASE NOTE: Some awards require that students be full-time for the semester(s) that they are funded. Please check the award criteria for the credit requirements to ensure you can meet them.
