President's Challenge Scholarship Ulster Community College | In Honor of President Emeritus Robert T. BrownAbout President's Challenge Scholarship

The President’s Challenge Scholarship is awarded to eighth-grade, first-generation, college-bound students upon graduation from high school. Recipients, identified by the sponsoring school district receive guidance counseling and mentoring throughout high school and are given a two-year, tuition-free, college education at SUNY Ulster.

"This initiative helps us break the cycle of poverty by making higher education a reality for students in our county who might not otherwise pursue a college education. Motivating students to think about their future educational plans while they are in eighth grade is just the beginning. The lives of the students who participate in this program will be changed forever.”

—Dr. Alan P. Roberts, President, SUNY Ulster
