Forever Orange Scholarship

The 2024 Forever Orange Scholarship provides half of the tuition for students who enroll full-time in a qualifying graduate degree or certificate program at Syracuse University. The scholarship is automatically available to all Class of 2024 graduating Syracuse University seniors who are eligible for admission—no separate scholarship application is needed. Graduating seniors who have already been admitted to a qualifying graduate program are also eligible.

The scholarship cannot be combined with any other program-granted graduate funding awards, such as assistantships, fellowships or other scholarships, nor can it be deferred to future terms. The scholarship is only for those programs on the List of Qualifying Programs by School and College.
