Academic Achievement Awards

For Entering Freshman Students
Cazenovia College has a comprehensive scholarship program reflecting our belief that outstanding candidates for freshman admission should be rewarded for their academic accomplishments on a basis other than financial need. All freshman applicants to any one of Cazenovia’s Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Professional Studies or Bachelor of Science degree programs are automatically considered for these scholarships on the basis of their high school records.
