SCCC $11,000 Scholarship

SCCC $11,000 Scholarship

St. Joseph's University, New York and Suffolk County Community College (SCCC) have amended a pre-existing articulation agreement between the two institutions to include the transfer from SCCC’s Hospitality and Resort Management program to the new Hospitality and Tourism Management program at St. Joseph's University.

The amendment was created to foster the pre-existing mutually beneficial relationship between the two Long Island institutions. This change will assist students who have earned their associate’s degrees from Suffolk County Community College in Hospitality and Resort Management and to further their education and obtain bachelor’s degrees in Hospitality and Tourism Management from St. Joseph's University.

This amendment would allow one graduate of the Hospitality and Resort Management program at SCCC to receive an $11,000 scholarship and admission to the Hospitality and Tourism Management program at the University each year. 

In order to be eligible for the scholarship, the student will need a GPA of 3.3 or higher and a nomination from a SCCC faculty member or program director in the University’s Hospitality and Resort Management program.

The original articulation agreement outlined the terms of the Presidential Transfer Scholarship for three graduate nominees of SCCC to attend St. Joseph's University. The agreement allowed for a more efficient transfer process for students and continues to do so with the new amendment.
