What do scholarships cover?
  • A full scholarship covers 100% of the total cost of participating in a program on campus that remains after the $75 required participant contribution. The total cost includes tuition, housing, meals, and access to campus amenities.
  • A partial scholarship provides a significant discount toward the total cost of participating in a program on campus, as outlined above.
  • A commuter scholarship covers 100% of the daily commuter cost. The total cost includes tuition, housing, meals, and access to campus amenities. A commuter scholarship does not include housing.
Is transportation covered?
The cost of transportation to/from Omega is NOT included in the scholarship; please make sure you are able to cover the cost of your travel expenses.
Why do you request financial information?
One of the ways we assess applications is to take financial need into account (using the guidelines below). Funds for scholarships are limited, and we unfortunately do not have the resources to provide a scholarship to every applicant. Please note that fitting into these financial guidelines does not automatically qualify you for a scholarship.

How do you decide who receives a scholarship?

We take financial need into consideration and carefully review responses to the essay questions during our application assessment process.

If I am awarded a scholarship, how do I make sure I am registered for my program?
You can make sure you are registered by confirming your decision to attend within two weeks of being notified of acceptance. If you are unable to confirm your participation, we may offer the scholarship to another applicant. For recipients of partial scholarships, any remaining balance will become due and payable when you receive your confirmation of registration and no later than two weeks before the start of the program. Please note that submitting a scholarship application does not guarantee you a scholarship nor automatically register you for the program.
If I am not awarded a scholarship, is there any chance I could be offered one later?
Applicants who are not offered a scholarship are placed on a waiting list after they are notified. We are unable to respond to status inquiries from applicants on the waiting list. In the event a scholarship becomes available, applicants on the waiting list are contacted. Individuals are welcome to reapply the following year.
What if I still have questions?
If your question was not addressed here, please email or call 845.266.4444, ext. 180. In your message, please mention the specific program for which you are applying. We may not be able to call you back immediately and appreciate your patience.
