SUNY Cobleskill Receives $15,000 from the Ellucian Foundation to Support Students in Need

PATH Scholarship program directly supports students facing economic hardship

SUNY Cobleskill has been selected as a 2021 Progress, Accomplishment, Thriving, Hope (PATH) Scholarship recipient through the Ellucian Foundation. The PATH Scholarship program provides grants to higher education institutions to support students facing economic hardship. The College received $15,000, which will be distributed to 15 students at $1,000 each to help cover items such as housing costs, tuition expenses, and food.

These scholarships are specifically for students pursuing a Bachelor’s degree and whose scholarships and financial aid do not fully cover their tuition costs. SUNY Cobleskill’s Student Financial Services Office used a defined formula, based on the funder’s criteria, to identify which students are potentially eligible to apply for this scholarship.

“SUNY Cobleskill is grateful for the caring commitment of our donors who provide critical scholarship assistance to our students,” said John Zacharek, Vice President for Development at SUNY Cobleskill. “We are both thankful and proud to partner with such a progressive organization as Ellucian, and are excited to share the news of these scholarship dollars with our student recipients.”

“The feedback was phenomenal from last year’s inaugural PATH Scholarship, and we are pleased to expand the program to have a greater impact in the U.S. and around the world. Students across the globe continue to face ongoing disruptions due to COVID and other factors, and we at Ellucian are committed to doing our part,” said Laura Ipsen, President and CEO of Ellucian.

Ipsen continued, “For too many students, even small financial difficulties can critically alter their journey and keep them from reaching their educational goals. Working with our partner institutions, these funds will have a positive impact on the lives of students and enable them to continue on their learning journey.”

The Progress, Accomplishment, Thriving, Hope (PATH) Scholarship is provided by the Ellucian Foundation, established in 2020 by Ellucian, the leading technology solutions provider for higher education. In its first year, the PATH Scholarships provided 25 eligible higher education institutions with $500,000 (USD) in grants, delivering scholarship awards to a total of 680 students.
