Scholarship Requirements

These full-tuition scholarships are awarded to students from Orange County high schools who graduate in the top 10% of their class, an Academic Transcript indicating 92% or higher average, and plan to attend SUNY Orange.

The President's Honors Program Scholarship for Outstanding Academic Achievement has the additional requirements that students must 1) carry a full-time class load, 2) maintain enrollment in the SUNY Orange Honors Program, and 3) achieve a 3.2 GPA.

Scholarship Details

The President's Scholarship covers the following items:

  • Tuition
  • Fees
  • $500 towards textbooks each semester


Many of Orange County's best and brightest high school graduates leave the County to study at private as well as public four year degree granting institutions and never return. Conversely, more than 75% of all SUNY Orange graduates eventually return to the Orange County area and become valuable contributors to our local economy.

In an effort to entice some of the best and brightest high school students to choose SUNY Orange for their first two years of college education, the SUNY Orange Foundation established the President’s Scholarship for Outstanding Academic Achievement and the President's Honors Program Scholarship for Outstanding Academic Achievement.

Sponsors of the President's Scholarships not only help defray the tuition costs of an outstanding student for an entire semester, but (based upon our alumni data) will most likely ensure that this student becomes a valuable contributor to our future local economy.

To become a Presidential Sponsor, please contact Vinnie Cazzetta, Vice President of Institutional Advancement:
