Cayuga Offers New Scholarship to High School Seniors

May 17th, 2017 Posted in Foundation News & Events

Cayuga Community College and the College’s Foundation announced a new scholarship program for Cayuga County high school seniors who show promise for success in college.  The Fred L. Emerson Foundation Academic Scholarship is supported by an endowment from the Auburn foundation.  Candidates must be high school seniors who enroll as first-time, full-time students at Cayuga Community College and have a high school average of 75 or above.

The equivalent of nine scholarships will be awarded to Cayuga County high school seniors, who will become Emerson Scholars and have access to college planning support and advising while receiving a debt-free, two-year college education.  In addition, The Emerson Foundation has funded three years of support for student success advocates, who will work closely with Emerson Scholars on their academic careers.

For more information, or to apply for the scholarship, visit or call (866) 598-8883.
