Undergraduate Scholarships for Local Aid-Eligible Students
Undergraduate Scholarships for Aid-Eligible Students from the Local Community
In an effort to encourage local students to attend Columbia College and The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, Columbia University recruits qualified students from the local community. Columbia University has established a scholarship fund to serve up to 40 aid-eligible undergraduate students per year who are admitted to Columbia College and/or The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, with funding made available to meet their fully demonstrated financial need.
Local high school students who are:
- Admitted to Columbia College (CC) and/or The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS)
- Aid-eligible. Contact the Columbia Financial Aid & Educational Financing Office to determine your eligibility based on financial need: http://www.studentaffairs.columbia.edu/finaid/eligibility/contribution.php
