Corning Community College offers more than 40 scholarships to help you pay for your education. For your convenience, we have one Common Scholarship Application (available starting January 1, 2014) that covers most of our scholarships. Only one application is required per applicant, and you will be considered for all scholarships for which you qualify. Availability for all scholarships is dependent upon funding for current-year distribution and can fluctuate on an annual basis.
Applications for the 2014-2015 academic year are due April 1, 2014.
Please review the information below before beginning your application.
