Herbert School Scholarship Application Form

Deadline: May 31 for scholarships that will be awarded the following academic year.

Because of faculty involvement in the selection process and consideration of applicants’ involvement within the Herbert School, most scholarships are awarded to rising juniors and seniors. If you are the recipient of an endowed scholarship in your junior year it will be renewed in your senior year provided all conditions of the scholarship are met in the second year.

Endowed scholarships may underwrite all or a portion of your award from Hofstra University.


Applications will only be accepted for annual scholarships and select endowed scholarships that do not replace existing Hofstra University aid. Eligible students will be matched to suitable scholarships based on the scholarship criteria and availability. Students must have a FAFSA on file with Student Financial Services to be considered for all scholarships. International students are not eligible for Herbert School donor funded scholarships. Scholarship awards are usually divided in half – 50% applied to the fall tuition bill and 50% applied to the spring bill. The Max Kolb scholarships are monetary checks awarded in May.
