What is the Alumni Scholarship Fund?

During the 1998-99 school year, the South Colonie Central School District celebrated its 50th anniversary as a centralized school district. As part of the year long recognition of this historic event, a committee of alumni was established in collaboration with the district to arrive upon a memorable gift to present to the district during its 50th Anniversary Grand Finale in May, 1999. The Alumni Committee decided upon establishing an Alumni Scholarship Fund.

What is the purpose of the South Colonie Alumni Scholarship Fund?

The purpose of the fund is to present scholarships at the annual awards ceremony during the month of May to graduating seniors who will be furthering their education. The criteria of the scholarship is established each year by a scholarship selection committee.

Where does the fund comes from to support the South Colonie Alumni Scholarship Fund?

The scholarship funds have come from a grass roots effort among alumni and other members of the community. More than $10,000 has been raised to date. These funds will remain in perpetuity. Scholarships will be drawn from the interest earned on the principal amount. There is an ongoing effort to raised additional funds with the goal of expanding scholarships to our students.

Photos of caps and gowns in airHave any scholarships been awarded?

The first scholarship was awarded in May, 2000 and continues to be an integral part of the annual awards ceremony at Colonie Central High School each spring.

Where do students obtain a scholarship application?

The application and related information are available from the high school Counseling Center.

Transition to South Colonie Dollars for Scholars

To ensure continued scholarship offerings to graduating seniors at Colonie Central High School in a perpetual manner, the South Colonie Alumni Scholarship Fund became affiliated with South Colonie Dollars for Scholars in early 2003. The transition has provided the Alumni Scholarship to be an integral part of our culture, the ability to expand by tapping into new opportunities, access to additional resources & new partnerships on a local, state & national level.

The South Colonie Alumni Scholarship is administered by South Colonie Dollars for Scholars, a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization which permits all contributions to be tax deductible as defined by the Internal Revenue Service.
