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.


If you are interested in a particular scholarship, please note it above. Otherwise, pending eligibility, we will match you to a suitable scholarship. Herbert School faculty may also initiate scholarship recommendations. Please remember that you must have a FAFSA on file with Student Financial Services to be considered for any and all scholarships. Also note that the Kolb, Wood and Alumni Association scholarships require separate application procedures or applications. International students are not eligible for the Herbert School scholarships. Scholarship awards are usually divided in half – 50% applied to the fall tuition bill and 50% applied to the spring bill. The Kolb Scholarships are monetary checks awarded in May.
