The Earle and Elizabeth Wilde-Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County Scholarship Fund and the Skoda Family Scholarship-Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County Fund have recently been established for graduating high school seniors from Sullivan County.
The Earle and Elizabeth Wilde-CCESC Scholarship is open to graduating high school seniors from the Sullivan County area who plan to continue their education in an agricultural related field at either the State University of New York College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill or Morrisville.
The Skoda Family Scholarship at CCESC will be given to a Sullivan County graduating high school senior who plans to attend Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, PA and major in Agriculture. Orange County graduating high school students who plan to attend Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, PA and major in Agriculture may also apply with the understanding that preference will be given to graduating high school students in Sullivan County. If there are no applications from Sullivan County graduating high students who plan to major in Agriculture in any year, then the scholarship may be awarded to any resident of Sullivan County (with any major) who plans to attend Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, PA. If there are no graduating high school students in Orange or Sullivan County who fit the criteria, then the scholarship may be awarded to a currently enrolled Delaware Valley College student from Sullivan County majoring in Agriculture.
The Earle and Elizabeth Wilde-CCESC Scholarship Fund and the Skoda Family Scholarship at CCESC are facilitated through the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, a 501(c)(3) public charity that was created to help individuals, organizations, and businesses establish charitable endowment funds to benefit their community. To create your own charitable endowment, to make a contribution to this scholarship fund, or to add to an existing named endowment fund, please contact the Community Foundation, Karen VanHouten Minogue, at (845) 769-9393, e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.cfoc-ny.org.
