Student Scholarships

Every year, NYSIR awards three sets of scholarships to college-bound seniors from NYSIR member school districts and BOCES.

Cristin Bambino Scholarships are awarded on a regional basis. Seven regional winners receive $3,000 scholarships, a separate runner-up receives a $4,000 award and a grand winner receives a $5,000 scholarship.

Paul Jensen Scholarships are awarded to two individuals on a statewide basis. One scholarship is in the amount of $5,000, and the other has a value of $3,000.

Joseph Goncalves Scholarships – a $5,000 grand award and a $3,000 runner-up grant – are awarded on a statewide basis.

The deadline for filing applications generally is April 1 of the applicable year, and awards often are presented during NYSIR’s annual meeting.
