Scholarship Award Disbursement

With few exceptions, Brockport Foundation Scholarships applies all awards through Student Accounts and they are typically divided equally between the fall and springs semester. The scholarship office is willing to work with students in applying the award to one semester depending on the scholarship agreement and the reason for the request. For example, a student may request that their award be paid completely in the fall semester, as the student will graduate in December.

The exception to the direct application of scholarships to a student’s account is when the donor has requested that the award be paid as a check. Please note that recipients will be provided IRS Form 1099-MISC if they received a check in the amount of $600, or more, and may be subject to report the scholarship(s) as miscellaneous income on their tax return(s).

Students should not plan to use scholarships for the next academic year during the summer term unless the scholarship specific states such. The Brockport Foundation announces scholarships in the spring and awards are disbursed in the upcoming academic year.

Student applicants should have at least one, preferably two, semesters of study remaining at SUNY Brockport at the time they receive notification of their scholarship.
