SUNY Ulster Foundation Offers Scholarships for New Paltz Residents
June 7, 2019 – Stone Ridge, NY – New Paltz residents are eligible for several scholarships at SUNY Ulster when enrolling for the fall 2019 semester. Recent high school graduates and adult learners are encouraged to apply. The deadline for priority consideration for these scholarships is July 19, 2019, but scholarship applications are accepted all year on a rolling basis. All majors and courses of study are eligible. Students can be day, evening, or online students.
Scholarships range from $2,000 annually to fully paid tuition based on academic merit and/or financial need. New Paltz residents still have time to enroll at SUNY Ulster for the fall 2019 semester and apply for these scholarships. The two scholarships available for fall enrollment for all New Paltz residents are the Frank G. Elliot Scholarship, which is available for residents of the Town of New Paltz, with $30,000 available for the upcoming academic year and the chance to renew for multiple years of study at SUNY Ulster, and the George Devine Future of New Paltz Scholarship, which awards $2,000 annually to residents of the Town of New Paltz or students who graduated from New Paltz High School.
Lorraine Salmon, Executive Director of the SUNY Ulster Foundation, says, "Thanks to the generosity of George Devine, founder of Devine Insurance, and Grace E. Elliot, who established a scholarship fund in memory of her brother, Frank G. Elliot, students from New Paltz have expanded scholarships available to attend SUNY Ulster and, this year, are supported by more than $30,000 in scholarships. Scholarship awards will be announced in August.”
