Every admitted Honors College student will receive some level of scholarship support. This support is most often awarded in the form of a Presidential or Presidential Merit Scholarship. Continuation of the scholarship is contingent upon meeting the Honors College criteria.


Stony Brook will send a scholarship award letter via e-mail to those students selected to receive a merit based scholarship. The e-mail process begins in the early part of the new year and typically follows an offer of admissions.
