Learning knows no bounds at SUNY Cobleskill – and it also knows no off-season. While many members of the campus community use the summer to rejuvenate and prepare for the upcoming academic year, the spring and summer months are often when students – future and present – learn of scholarship awards they have earned, further enhancing their learning opportunities.

This year is no exception; across disciplines, students enrolling for the Fall 2019 Semester, as well as those already here, are learning they have received prestigious scholarships as a result of their hard work, commitment, and impending success in their field(s) of study.
