Donor Advised Scholarship Funds

Many scholarship funds at Adirondack Foundation were created to benefit a field of study where the donors established an advisory committee, defined guidelines for selecting recipients and award use. Each of these scholarship funds has unique interests, from supporting aspiring journalists to assisting future doctors to return to the region to practice medicine. These scholarship funds use a competitive application process to make decisions.
