2015-2016 SUNY Adirondack Scholarship Program

(coordinated by the SUNY Adirondack Foundation)


An opportunity to complete a single application for consideration for almost 100 awards (individual awards range from $100 to full-tuition).  Recipients will be notified in early May and the information shared with SUNY Adirondack Student Accounts as a deferment against Fall 2015 tuition and fees charges.


SUNY Adirondack students enrolled in Spring 2015 classes who have earned a minimum of 12 credits with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 at the end of the Fall 2014 semester, and who plan to enroll at SUNY Adirondack for at least six credits for the Fall 2015 semester.  Please note that students pursuing degrees from SUNY Plattsburgh, Paul Smiths or SUNY Empire State on the SUNY Adirondack campus are not eligible for this scholarship program.


The application is in two parts.  Part I contains demographic and identification information needed to enter your application in the Banner system.  Part II is the information to be reviewed by the selection committee and includes your future majors and/or careers, campus and community involvement, and, most important of all, your responses to three questions that will “introduce” you to the selection committee and scholarship sponsors.  We encourage you to review your application carefully and consider using the services of the Writing Center.  Note that the selection committee may be influenced by the presentation of your application, including completeness, spelling, grammar and neatness.
