University College offers a number of scholarships and grants for need-based and merit-based students, and student veterans.
Eta Pi Upsilon, the first senior women’s honorary society in the United States, was founded at Syracuse in 1898. The goals of the society have been: to better understand and help solve University problems, especially among women students; to uphold the tradition and ideals of Syracuse University; to make possible for every Syracuse woman the greatest individual development through unselfish service in campus activities; and to attain a deeper sense of unity and fellowship among all Syracuse women.
By 1968, alumnae enthusiastically responded to suggestions that they provide a scholarship to deserving women enrolled in a degree program at Syracuse University through University College. Since then, the scholarship program has significantly grown from one to 25+ awards through a combination of alumnae donations to an endowed scholarship fund.
Scholarships are awarded to undergraduates annually based on academic distinction and financial need. Ten or more need-based scholarships for six-credit hours each are available, to be used in one of the following three semesters.
The organization offers need-based scholarships for women in high academic standing.
Qualified students are reviewed by the UC Scholarship Committee and nominees are forwarded to the Eta Pi Upsilon chapter board. The board invites winners to a brunch, typically held on 17 May. Attendance at the brunch is expected of winners.
