                    Stay on Long Island Scholarships                    

The Stay on Long Island Initiative applications are currently in the review stages. It is our hope that applicants will notified by the end of April. This process of selecting, awarding and committing to an applicant can be complex, as there are some instances when a student is given multiple offers and they inevitably have to decline one or more. The colleges are then required to select an alternate and that can often take some time. We thank you for your patience during this process as we are just as eager to finalize the scholarship offers.
