Our scholarship program for students is a key priority of the SUNY Schenectady  Foundation. During the 2017-2018 school year, the Foundation awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships to help almost 200 students complete their degrees. Awards range from $250 to $5,000 and each goes directly toward fees and books on student accounts. Foundation scholarships are especially helpful because they are available ONLY to SUNY Schenectady students.
