Because the COVID-19 pandemic has made it impossible for many students meet the April 1 scholarship application deadline, the SUNY Orange Foundation has extended the deadline to May 1.
“Because school districts are currently closed and our own SUNY Orange students are just returning from an extended spring break, many students are unable to get the information they need,” said Dawn Ansbro, executive director of the SUNY Orange Foundation. “We have extended the deadline to May 1 to ensure that all students are able to apply.”
The SUNY Orange Foundation offers more than 230 scholarships, totaling approximately $400,000. The scholarships are available to students just entering SUNY Orange, returning students, and those who are graduating from SUNY Orange and transferring to a four-year institution.
A full list of scholarships offered by SUNY Orange, as well as the application itself, can be found at http://www.sunyorange.academicworks.com. To be considered for a scholarship, students must be accepted or enrolled at SUNY Orange.
