Local Businesses Lend a Hand to Future Community Leaders

2012 Marist Fund - Hudson Valley Scholars Program

Richard Whalen with students at Hudson Valley Scholars ReceptionStudents are the foundation of Marist College. From earning Fulbright and Goldwater scholarships, to leading the MAAC in academic honor roll selections for the ninth straight year; from bringing awareness to heart disease and breast cancer, to sponsoring a mentor event in an effort to lower high school dropout rates in the local community, Marist students demonstrate their leadership every day.

In an effort to support these outstanding Marist students, local businesses are leading the way by sponsoring a portion of their educational costs through the Hudson Valley Scholars Program. For more than a decade the program has supported local high school graduates attending Marist College with financial scholarships. All student scholars are local and many will remain in the valley after they graduate from Marist and become responsible members of their communities.

The Hudson Valley Scholars Program is run by a volunteer committee and depends solely on the generosity of the businesses that support the student scholars. If your business would like more information on sponsoring a student, please contact Jeanine Thompson in the Marist College Office of College Advancement at (845) 575-3863.
