  • Be ranked in the top 10 percent of their graduating class at a New York State high school;
  • Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher each term while pursuing their undergraduate degree; and
  • Agree to both work in a STEM field and reside in New York State for five years upon completing their college education.
