Trustee Scholarship Program

This four-year, full-tuition scholarship is offered to students with highly impressive academic credentials, demonstrated commitment to community and school, and other distinguished talents.

Of the students who applied to Hofstra for the 2021-2022 academic year, this scholarship was awarded to students who, on average, achieved a 1540 SAT score (or ACT equivalent) and a weighted GPA of 4.36 and were typically in the top 10% of their high school graduating class.

*We recommend that students interested in the Trustee Scholarship apply Early Action to Hofstra. Apply by November 15 for Early Action 1 or December 15 for Early Action 2.
