At NYCPM, we make every effort to keep college costs affordable. We have a scholarship program that assists outstanding students from the time of admission all the way to graduation, with total awards in excess of $500,000 per year.
NYCPM's Admissions Committee selects well-qualified candidates for admission. At the time of selection, the most highly qualified candidates are identified and offered merit-based scholarship awards ranging from $2,000 to $10,000 per year. These are independent of any additional scholarship or grant awards that students may be receiving from other sources. The scholarships awarded to incoming freshmen are credited toward tuition and fees over the four-year program, subject to satisfactory academic performance, as defined by the College, throughout the program.
In addition, NYCPM offers a number of competitive scholarship awards, each based on specific selection criteria and application procedures, given to outstanding students each year throughout the D.P.M. program. Many of these scholarships are provided by outside organizations and endowment funds. They vary in monetary value, criteria for selection, and semester in which awarded, and generally consist of credit applied toward tuition and fees. The most current list of scholarships is found in our Student Handbook, available at this web site.
