Coby Premier Scholarships

SUNY Cobleskill offers generous scholarship support to our students. All students who complete an Admission application and a FAFSA application before February 15 are given priority consideration for the Coby Premier scholarships listed below. No additional scholarship application is required. Scholarships are available to students who have been accepted into a program of study for the Fall 2020 semester and intend to enroll full-time.

The college reserves the right to limit the number of scholarships offered to students enrolling in high demand programs.
