Total scholarship funds awarded for the FY20-21 academic year surpassed $1,000,000—an amazing new record! To celebrate this accomplishment and remarkable student achievements for the year, SUNY New Paltz Foundation scholars joined President Christian and Professor Emeritus Giancarlo Traverso at our virtual scholarship reception in May 2021. Representing various Schools and scholarships, the virtual event highlighted how scholarships have a real-world impact both for those who receive and those who give.
