Syracuse College Partners

Say Yes students have the opportunity to receive scholarships to colleges and other post-secondary institutions, whether two-year, four-year or vocational – public or private.

PaolaSay Yes’s coalition of more than 100 private college and university partners, located in 21 states and the District of Columbia, offer full-tuition scholarships to eligible Say Yes Scholars.

Please note: Private Partner colleges are the primary source of funding to Say Yes students attending their institutions. While all of the colleges have agreed to the basic conditions of the Say Yes program, colleges may have individual policies and restrictions. The determination of the actual award that a student receives will be made by the college at their discretion based on college policies.  Partner Colleges with unique conditions to the agreement with Say Yes have an asterisk and a brief description of the unique qualifiers in their agreement. Please contact the colleges directly for additional eligibility information.
