LAKE PLACID - This spring, Adirondack Foundation will award up to $140,000 in scholarship grants to students and families seeking financial aid for higher education. The Bruce L. Crary Foundation, a supporting organization of Adirondack Foundation, is offering $300,000 in scholarships to area students.

At Adirondack Foundation, a limited number of scholarships are available for current college students; the majority of scholarships are for high school graduating seniors.

The Crary Foundation provides scholarships to full-time undergraduate and non-traditional students in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, and Warren counties. Grants are approved by the Crary Foundation’s board based on recommendations of selection committees at each of the 40 area schools Crary serves. Scholarship grants in a range of $600 to $1000 are made to students based on academic qualification and financial need. The award is renewable for each of four years of undergraduate study.

Scholarships at Adirondack Foundation and the Crary Foundation were created by generous people who understand both the value of education and its cost. By taking advantage of scholarship assistance, aspiring students help donors achieve their philanthropic aims.
