AWARDS AND GRANTS DETAILS
FRED L. EMERSON FOUNDATION ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS
Cayuga Community College and the Cayuga County Community College Foundation are pleased to announce a new scholarship program for high-performing high school seniors in Cayuga County (including Jordan-Elbridge, Skaneateles and Tyburn Academy). This new academic opportunity is being made possible by a generous donation from The Fred L. Emerson Foundation.
Candidates for this new scholarship must be enrolled as a first-time, full-time student at Cayuga Community College and have a 75% average (2.5 GPA) or above. The equivalent of nine scholarships will be awarded to the most deserving students from the component high schools in Cayuga County.
Students selected will become Emerson Scholars and have access to college planning support and ongoing advising, as well as to what will amount to a debt-free two-year college education. The Emerson Scholarship will cover both tuition and fees after federal and state aid and other scholarships have been applied to the student’s account.
