2. The Long Island Scholarship Program

The Long Island Scholarship Program provides accepted students (who must be sophomores, juniors, or seniors currently enrolled in public high schools on Long Island) with up to $20,000 in free educational consulting services from the fall of their junior year (or whenever they apply and are accepted) through their first semester in college.
