Liberty Partnerships Program

The Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) is a state-funded program designed to help at-risk middle and high school students succeed academically. This year-round program is based within the Syracuse City Schools for the school year and exposes LPP students to college campuses and enrichment activities in the summer. The program's mission ensures that these students "will graduate from high school and be prepared to enter post-secondary education or the workforce".

In conjunction with the Liberty Partnerships Program, the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarship Programs will award a Liberty Partnerships Scholarship (combined with Syracuse University Merit Scholarships if applicable) equal to at least one half of the cost of tuition to qualified undergraduate students who have participated in the Liberty Partnerships Program. The scholarship is renewable for four years according to standard scholarship renewal policies at Syracuse University.

To apply for this scholarship, students must submit a statement of participation that is endorsed by the coordinator of their Liberty Scholarships Program. This statement must be submitted to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarship Programs at the time of application to the University. The deadline for submission is February 1st.
