There will be more opportunities to get full scholarships for Cayuga Community College students.

The foundation said in a press release that the Cayuga Community College Foundation is boosting funds for the Presidential Scholars Program by 50%. The additional funding will allow about a dozen new scholarships to be awarded between CCC’s Auburn and Fulton campuses.

The press release said that recipients of the Presidential Scholarships must be first-time full-time undergraduate students. They also need to maintain a 3.0 GPA each semester to remain eligible for the scholarship. These additional scholarships will likely be available in the 2022-23 academic year, the statement said.

Full Presidential Scholarships can be obtained by Cayuga County and Oswego County students who have graduated in the top 20% of their high school classes. The press release said students from the Jordan-Elbridge, Skaneateles, Red Creek, Tyburn Academy and Union Springs Academy school districts are also able to apply for the scholarship.

“Scholarships are an essential component of supporting students as they balance their educational and career goals with work and family responsibilities. Full Presidential Scholarships facilitate the financial commitments of the recipients and allow these students to stay focused on their academic journey,” Dr. Brian Durant, president of the CCC, said in a press release. “Our institution at the college has always been a consistent sponsor of Cayuga, and we thank them for their continued support of our students.”
