Mid-Hudson River Valley Commuter Grant


The Mid-Hudson River Valley Commuter Grant will be awarded to undergraduate freshmen who commute to campus. The $5,000 grant will be in addition to a merit scholarship, should one be awarded, and allocated evenly in the fall and spring semesters ($2,500 each). 

To be eligible, students must be undergraduate freshmen commuting from their permanent residence in the Mid-Hudson River Valley or its surrounding areas, a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, and enrolled full-time.

The Mid-Hudson River Valley Commuter Grant is renewable for up to eight academic-year semesters (fall and spring) for students who continue to commute from their permanent residence and maintain satisfactory academic progress toward their degree.

Students who change their housing status after the May 1 deposit deadline or move off campus will not be eligible for this grant.
