Second Chance Scholarship

The Second Chance Scholarship Program was established to provide financial assistance to students who have experienced adverse life circumstances that delayed or interfered with their educational plans, but are now ready to attempt their studies again. Successful candidates will be students who have the potential and the desire to continue their formal education but have limited financial resources to do so. The program is designed to provide funds to selected candidates to maximize the student’s opportunity to obtain bachelor’s or master’s degree from The College of Saint Rose.
