Establish a Scholarship

The Power of Scholarship Support

SUNY Schenectady's tuition is the third most affordable in the state, but many of our students face significant hurdles on their way to a college degree. Programs like the Food Pantry and the Student Emergency Fund can address many of the obstacles, but for most students, the greatest barrier to continuing or completing their education is the cost of attendance. We rely on generous donors to help us make the dream of a college education a reality for our students.

There are several ways for you to invest in scholarships at SUNY Schenectady.

Annual scholarships provide the boost that some students need to complete their education. This option allows you to designate your named scholarship to any of the five academic divisions at the College.

Endowed scholarships provide funding each and every year, transforming lives in perpetuity. Your named, endowed scholarship can be restricted by a variety of criteria.

My goal is to become a professional chef and owner of a local restaurant and to also help other students achieve their dreams. I want to give back to our community and continue to pay it forward. Thank you for investing in me and my dreams.
