Applications Available for 2018 Scholarships
Saturday, March 10, 2018
NYSIR is once again making scholarships available to college-bound seniors from NYSIR-member school districts.
Thirteen separate awards totaling $46,000 will be awarded in three scholarship categories: the Cristin Ann Bambino Memorial Scholarship, the Paul Jensen Memorial Scholarship and the Joseph Goncalves Student Humanitarian Scholarship.
Seven $3,000 Bambino scholarships will be awarded on a regional basis, along with a second-place $4,000 grant and a $5,000 statewide award for first place. The scholarships are available to college-bound special-education students.
The Jensen scholarship is available to students who have excelled in design and wish to pursue their talents in college. Two scholarships, one for $5,000 and one for $3,000, will be awarded statewide.
Goncalves scholarships, a first-place $5,000 award and a runner-up $3,000 award, are offered to students planning to go to college in New York who demonstrate a record of involvement and work for a cause or organization that actively promotes social justice, equal opportunity, relief of human suffering or similar humanitarian activity.
Applications and instructions for all scholarships are available here. They should be completed and received in NYSIR’s main office, either by U.S. mail or email, by April 4.
