College Foundation Increasing Scholarship Opportunities for Cayuga Students

Students attending Cayuga Community College will enjoy greater opportunities to secure full-tuition scholarships thanks to the generous support of the Cayuga Community College Foundation.

The College Foundation, a key sponsor of scholarship opportunities at Cayuga, is increasing funding for the Presidential Scholars Program by 50 percent. The added scholarship funding will allow approximately a dozen new scholarships to be awarded between Cayuga’s Auburn and Fulton campuses.

Increasing available scholarships is an important way to support students as they pursue their educational and career goals at Cayuga, said College and Foundation leaders.

“We are excited to expand this program that allows us to offer greater opportunities for our area high school students to come to Cayuga,” said Foundation Board President John Latanyshyn.

“The Foundation helps increase the pathways for students to be successful at Cayuga by addressing some financial obstacles,” said Foundation Executive Director Guy T. Cosentino. We look forward to welcoming more Presidential Scholars to Cayuga in the future.”

“Scholarships are an essential element to supporting students as they balance their educational and career goals, work and family responsibilities. Full-tuition Presidential Scholarships ease the financial obligations of recipients and allow those students to remain focused on their academic journey,” said Cayuga President Dr. Brian Durant. “Our College Foundation has always been a steadfast sponsor of Cayuga, and we thank them for their continued support for our students.”

Recipients of the Presidential Scholarship must be first-time, full-time college students and maintain a 3.0 GPA in each semester to remain eligible for the scholarship. The added scholarships will likely become available in the 2022-2023 academic year.

Full-tuition Presidential Scholarships are available to students from Cayuga and Oswego County who graduate in the top 20 percent of their high school class. Students from Tyburn Academy, Union Springs Academy, and the Jordan-Elbridge, Red Creek and Skaneateles school districts are also eligible to apply for the scholarship.
