New York State Grants and Scholarships

New York State Dream Act

The Senator José Peralta New York State DREAM Act opens the doors of higher education to thousands of undocumented students, providing access to the new Excelsior Scholarship, the Tuition Assistance Program, and other state‐administered scholarships that were not previously available to support their higher-education costs. If you attended or graduated from a NYS high school, attended an approved NYS high-school equivalency program, or received a NYS equivalency diploma, you may be eligible for New York state financial aid. For more information about determining eligibility, and to apply, visit NYS Higher Education Services Corporation's Dream Act website.
