Scholarships for associate's degree candidates can be up to $3,000.00 and for bachelor degree candidates up to $25,000.00 per year plus additional funding to assist with living expenses.
Annual awards are given to graduating students who achieve academic excellence in their various disciplines, and to students who give outstanding service to the college through student government and other student activities. The Faculty Committee on Awards administers the annual Awards Program. The Awards Ceremony is part of the two-day Commencement Exercises at Kingsborough and is usually held the evening before the Commencement Day in June. Families and friends of the awardees are invited to the annual Awards Ceremony to share in the celebration of the students' success.
The Faculty Committee on Awards, chaired by the Associate Provost, also selects the Valedictorian. All students who have achieved a GPA of 4.00 and have no more than 12 transfer credits to Kingsborough are invited to audition for the Valedictorian speech.
Awards are determined by departmental or college scholarship committee. Application deadlines will be announced for awards that are competitive.
