The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan Counties, through a donor-advised fund established by Sullivan Renaissance, offers a limited number of scholarships to Sullivan County residents who volunteer in a significant way with a Renaissance project.

Scholarships are announced in August and are applied toward the 2022 spring semester at an undergraduate college of one's choice. The SUNY Sullivan Foundation will also award scholarships ranging from $750 to $1500 for Sullivan County residents attending SUNY Sullivan.

These scholarship programs recognize volunteer efforts in projects that support the Sullivan Renaissance mission to build beautiful, active communities in Sullivan County.

Communities and organizations participating in the 2021 Sullivan Renaissance grant program welcome volunteer assistance in gardening, beautification, caring for public spaces, project documentation and outreach. Applicants for both scholarship programs must volunteer for a 2021 Renaissance project. Learn more or apply at: SullivanRenaissance.org/ growth.
