Emerson Scholarships - Emerson Scholarships are available to returning students through the individual academic programs. To be considered for an Emerson Scholarship, each student must complete and submit an Emerson Scholarship Application and provide the requested documentation by the appropriate deadline. The application is then forwarded to the academic program director for review and consideration. Only one Emerson Scholarship will be awarded per student. The amounts of the Emerson Scholarships range from $1,000 to $1,500 per year. These awards are for one year only and subsequent years require a new application and review.

Endowed Scholarships - These scholarships were established through Cazenovia College’s Named Scholarship Program.  The generosity of the College’s friends allowed the establishment of an endowment to annually support each of the scholarships.
