It Pays to Stay on Long Island. Innovative Suffolk Scholarship Program Offers Free Ride to Qualified Students.

A scholarship program conceived by Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay in 2011 to halt Long Island’s “brain drain” by keeping talented, motivated students on Long Island and attending Long Island Colleges and Universities has awarded scholarships totaling approximately $640,000 annually to 31 Suffolk County Community College students. The program has awarded more than $3 million in scholarships to 110 Suffolk County Community College students since its inception, President McKay said.

 

“The Stay on Long Island Initiative (SoLII) helps our graduates achieve their academic dreams by continuing their education at quality four-year colleges and universities right here in our region,” President McKay said.

 

The initiative, McKay explained, provides full and partial-tuition scholarships to current Suffolk County Community College students who graduate and transfer to partnering four-year Long Island colleges that include: Adelphi University, Briarcliffe College, Dowling College, Farmingdale State College, Five Towns College, Hofstra University, LIU Post, LIU Riverhead, LIU Brentwood, New York Institute of Technology, The College at Old Westbury, St. John’s University, St. Joseph’s College and Stony Brook University. Molloy College in Rockville Center is expected to join the scholarship program shortly.
