Scholarships & Graduate Assistantships
If you are looking for financial assistance at Mercy College, scholarships and grants are the most desirable because they do not need to be repaid.
Additionally, many individuals, friends, alumni of the College, academic, professional, fraternal and business organizations and foundations have created their own scholarships to recognize and help you. All incoming students are automatically reviewed for merit-based scholarships based on their incoming academic criteria.
Scholarships require full-time enrollment (at least 6 credits per term for undergraduates).
*Scholarship recipients must file a complete FAFSA application (including verification documents if selected) for disbursement of scholarship funds.
Currently enrolled students may apply for one of our endowed scholarships.
