Ulster Community College Foundation, Inc. awards scholarships recognizing students who strive for and achieve excellence. We have grown over the past forty-five years thanks to our generous donors.

  • In 1976, our foundation awarded $15,000 in scholarships.
  • Currently, SUNY Ulster will reach record scholarship awards – upwards of $500,000 to more than 350 students. In the 2022-2023 academic year, the Foundation will offer students $1 Million in
    scholarships for the first time in its history.
  • In 2019, The United States Department of Education listed SUNY Ulster in the top 100 2-Year Public Colleges in the United States for the low cost of education - after financial aid and scholarships! 
  • In 2020 and 2021,, Best Colleges declared SUNY Ulster the #1 community college in New York State.
  • Thanks to our donors for supporting our foundation and helping us to achieve these incredible designations!

Scholarships enable our SUNY Ulster students to begin or continue their education at SUNY Ulster, or to further their studies by transferring to four-year schools.
