Financial Assistance

Project Advance offers financial assistance to eligible students. Eligibility is primarily based on federal guidelines for low-income families. However, students who are experiencing unexpected financial hardships, such as a sudden loss of employment in the household or sudden military deployment, should also consider applying. Funding is limited and applications are considered on a rolling basis.

Once submitted, the decision will be sent to both the student and parent via email. If approved, students will receive anywhere from a 50%-70% reduction in tuition. The application for financial assistance only needs to be submitted once per academic year.

Required documentation:

  • Brief (under 500 words) personal statement describing your financial situation (ie- why are you applying for aid) AND
  • The most recent 1040 Federal Income Tax Form filed in the household (ie- for 2021 academic year, please submit the 1040 from 2020)

To apply for financial assistance, students and their parents/guardians should download and complete the Student Financial Assistance Application form  and return it with the required documentation.

If you have any questions about financial assistance eligibility, please email us at supabilling@syr.edu.
