How the Crary Education Fund Supports Adirondack Students

As a powerful way to increase scholarship support for students in the Adirondack region, Adirondack Foundation formalized a partnership with the Bruce L. Crary Foundation in 2007. The Crary Foundation has a long and credible track record of helping students in need attend college, as well as a multitude of success stories that demonstrate its effectiveness. Since 1973 over $11 million has been granted to more than 7,000 students. They work closely with each school district to determine the most deserving recipients. This collaboration enables both Crary and Adirondack Foundation to  help more young people in the Adirondack region.

Income eligibility is carefully considered and students may use their award for two or four-year colleges and vocational programs. A selection committee at each school reviews applications and the counselor submits recommendations to Crary. All awards are subject to the approval of the Crary Foundation Board and generally range from $600 to $1,200. Interested students are encouraged to inquire about the Crary Scholarship Program through their high school Guidance Department. If students remain eligible the scholarship is renewable for four years of undergraduate study.
