Donations to fund scholarships at SUNY Poly

Posted

The SUNY Poly Foundation has announced $75,000 in donations from three sets of individuals to establish merit-based scholarship programs and further defray educational costs for undergraduate students attending SUNY Polytechnic Institute, according to a release.

“Overall, the scholarships … aim to ensure that students who have a history of strong academic efforts, financial need, and who come from historically underserved or marginalized communities will still be able to find success as they engage with SUNY Poly’s hands-on programs to build toward exciting, in-demand careers,” a release notes, continuing, “In addition, an anonymous donor has provided additional funds to match up to $25,000 in donations made during SUNY Poly’s annual Day of Giving, scheduled for April 14, 2022.”

In a portion of a statement, SUNY Polytechnic Acting President Dr. Tod A. Laursen added, “...These donors provide excellent examples of how our own community answers the call to meet the needs of our students, and I encourage others who may be inspired by this generosity to show how they too can make a difference in students’ lives.”
