COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE THROUGH SULLIVAN RENAISSANCE

Volunteer with a Sullivan Renaissance Project to be eligible

May 1, 2017

[LIBERTY] – Students headed off to college this fall might consider applying for a Sullivan Renaissance scholarship.  Youth are encouraged to volunteer with a 2017 Sullivan Renaissance project to be eligible to apply for either of two scholarship programs.

Sullivan Renaissance Scholarship

The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan Counties, through a donor-advised fund established by Sullivan Renaissance, offers a limited number of scholarships to Sullivan County residents who volunteer in a significant way to a 2017 Renaissance project. 

Candidates must describe their contribution to Sullivan Renaissance, the impact the experience had on them, and why they have chosen their particular area of study. 

Scholarships are announced in August and may be applied toward the 2018 spring semester at an undergraduate college of one’s choice. 

SUNY Sullivan Scholarship

The SUNY Sullivan Foundation will also award scholarships to volunteers involved in 2017 Renaissance projects. Scholarships ranging from $750 to $1500 are available for SUNY Sullivan students who reside in Sullivan County. 

Applicants must volunteer for a 2017 Renaissance project and include a letter of recommendation from the leader of the Renaissance group.  They must show, either by submitting an approximately 250 words essay, photographic portfolio or a video of their participation in the project, “How have I, as a member of my community, been part of Sullivan Renaissance?”

Renaissance Program

Communities are just beginning to work on their projects and are looking for help throughout the spring and summer.  For a list of the groups and projects, call Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445.  For information about the SUNY Sullivan scholarship, call 845-434-5750 x 4327.  Applications are available online at http://www.sullivanrenaissance.org/grants/youth/.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation with support from Bold Gold Media Group, Fisher Mears Associates, The River Reporter, The Sullivan County Democrat and Thompson Sanitation.
