Awesome!


So the fantastic news is that it would seem Governor Cuomo's budget has passed- including the Excelsior Scholarship plan for free tuition at SUNY & CUNY schools :)

They've added a stipulation that after graduation you must live and work in NY state for as long as you had the scholarship, but I don't think that's a lot to ask.

Lots of news stories about it-

My daughter is very clever to have applied and been accepted to SUNY Purchase for this fall :)
