State University Supplemental Tuition Award (SUSTA)

Student Eligibility

  • Students must receive a TAP award in the term in which SUSTA is received and have been full-time in the same term.
  • Students must be an undergraduate.
  • Students must have federally calculated financial need.


This grant is funded by the New York State Division of Budget and is allocated to Empire State University annually. Due to limited SUSTA funding, not all students eligible to receive SUSTA will receive a grant. The maximum amount of SUSTA that a student may receive in any one term is $500.
