Since its inception, the primary purpose of the SUNY Adirondack Foundation has been to provide scholarship assistance to SUNY Adirondack students. Scholarships are available for all programs and to both new and returning students.
Categories of Scholarships
This group of scholarships is supported by income generated from the Foundation’s endowment, fund raising events and the annual giving campaign. Scholarships are awarded to new students each year until successful completion of a degree, as the students maintain their eligibility. There are currently four types of scholarships funded by the Foundation:
Academic Excellence Scholarship (AES)
SUNY Adirondack Foundation Scholarship
Working Scholars Scholarship

Established by area individuals, companies and organizations, they typically bear the name of the individual or organization who funds it annually, or in whose memory the scholarship was named. Primarily, these scholarships are available only to students already attending SUNY Adirondack with an established GPA. The competitive application process takes place in the spring semester of the student's first year and generally requires a minimum 2.5 GPA in 12 completed credits at SUNY Adirondack.

Eligibility for Scholarships
Students must be nominated by their guidance counselor in February of each year.
Students must apply for financial aid to be eligible for these scholarships. Scholarships are awarded to those who have financial need, but do not qualify for federal or state assistance.
These are awarded on a competitive basis each spring for returning students. Students must complete an application, have a 2.5 GPA in at least 12 credits at SUNY Adirondack. Some of the scholarships require students to demonstrate financial need, so students are highly encouraged to complete the FAFSA and the TAP applications.
