SUNY Cobleskill Student Veterans Association Funds New Scholarship Endowment

The SUNY Cobleskill Student Veterans Association (SVA) has established a new scholarship endowment to support access to higher education for student veterans.

While most student veterans are eligible for funding through the GI Bill, the new scholarship seeks to close the gaps for those who are not. The endowment will be fully funded at $10,000 over the course of five years.

“We don’t want any veteran walking away from an education because they can’t afford it,” said SVA President Kaylee Brant. “The SVA aims to support and provide resources for all veterans on this campus to successfully complete a higher education.”

The annual scholarship will be awarded to a full-time student veteran with a minimum GPA of 3.0 who was discharged under general or honorable conditions and is active in the SVA. Demonstration of financial need is preferred but not required.

“I am incredibly proud of our student veterans, who have gone above and beyond to help fellow veterans achieve their educational goals,” said SUNY Cobleskill President Marion Terenzio. “This scholarship bolsters SUNY Cobleskill’s longstanding commitment to improving access to higher education for student veterans and providing them the support they need to succeed.”

The SVA has raised funds for the scholarship through its annual Veterans Benefit Night charity dinner, the Veterans Day Dinner held in partnership with the SUNY Cobleskill Veteran Affairs Office, and through community partnerships, particularly with the Olde Tater Barn, which donated the proceeds from its annual Halloween Bash.

SUNY Cobleskill has been recognized as a “Best for Vets” college, a “Military Friendly School” and a “Military Spouse Friendly School.” It is approved by the Department of Defense and a member of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges.

If you would like to donate to the endowment, contribute to another endowment, or discuss establishing a new endowment, please contact the SUNY Cobleskill Advancement Office at 518-255-5524.
