SUNY Cobleskill Employees Create Scholarship

Times Union

Two SUNY Cobleskill employees have donated an endowment to the college to establish a new agricultural scholarship.

Jason Evans, assistant professor of agricultural business management at the college, and Matthew Barney, an admissions assistant, created the Mountain State Endowed Scholarship with a combined contribution of $10,000.

The School of Agriculture and Natural Resources will award the scholarship to one incoming out-of-state freshman each year. The $1,000 scholarship will go to a student from New England or the Mid-Atlantic region with a grade point average of at least 2.75 and proof of financial need.

Evans and Barney said they hope the scholarship goes to a student with a passion for agriculture who otherwise couldn’t afford to attend the college.
