Beginning this fall, the cost of an FLCC education may be even more affordable through the Excelsior Scholarship program. This first-in-the-nation plan will provide tuition-free college at New York State's public colleges and universities to New Yorkers making up to $100,000 annually in fall 2017, increasing to $110,000 in 2018, and reaching $125,000 in 2019. The application for this new scholarship is anticipated to be available in early June.
The Excelsior Scholarship is managed by the Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC). HESC is New York State's student financial aid agency that helps people pay for college and provides grant and scholarship award money to current and future college students.
