Scholarships

At Roberts, we are committed to helping adult and graduate students meet the financial obligation to earn a degree and advance a career. Our Financial Aid Office works to assist all students in their effort to maximize financial aid. Annually, Roberts awards financial assistance to over 75% of its adult and graduate students, which includes Federal and NYS aid. Our adult undergraduate students received over $350,000 in Pell Grants this past year. In addition, adult and graduate programs award over $750,000 in scholarship awards annually. Contact your program counselor to see if you qualify for a scholarship.
