The College awards very few merit scholarships to new students--mostly through the Geneseo Foundation. All applicants are considered and awards are made at the time of admission or shortly thereafter.
Unlike many institutions, public and private, Geneseo has made a commitment to dedicate the full measure of its resources to its mission--to offer the highest quality education possible. Thus, funds that might be used for merit scholarships are used to enhance the student experience. This enables the College to assure classes for all students are as small as possible and our facilities are what one might expect at a first-rate undergraduate liberal arts college.
