NYS Academic Excellence Awards

New York State Scholarship for Academic Excellence

Pending the appropriation of funds by the New York State Legislature, Scholarships for Academic Excellence will be awarded. Last year, we were able to submit 3 Pembroke students for this honor. 

This is not a scholarship you can apply for, but we are obligated to notify you about the scholarship and selection criteria. At Pembroke  High School, candidates for the NYS Scholarships for Academic Excellence are selected by computing a weighted average of the following Regents exams:

            ELA(English Language Arts)  -  Weight of three

            Algebra II -  Weight of three

            Global Studies & Geography -  Weight of one

            US History and Government  -  Weight of one

            Two Science Courses  -  Weight of one each

The student with the highest average of these tests may receive a $1,500 scholarship; the students with the next two highest averages may receive a scholarship of $500 each. Awards are renewable for up to four academic years of undergraduate study. Winners will be announced by January

Student awarded these scholarships must attend college in New York State in order to use their award.  Winners who choose to attend college outside of NY forfeit their award.
