The Broome Community College Foundation will hold its annual Scholarship Reception on Thursday, May 2, at SUNY Broome’s Ice Center.
The Foundation will award more than 300 merit-based scholarships recognizing more than 250 students during the event. This doesn’t include recipients of grants-in-aid, which is awarded to students through Financial Aid.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with check-in, appetizers and photos with donors and scholarship recipients. The all-campus awards presentation begins at 6 p.m. Awards for the four academic divisions. Awards for Business and Professional Studies; Health Sciences; Liberal Arts; and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics will commence at 7 p.m.
More than 400 individuals are expected to attend, including students and their families, donors, representatives from local corporations and organizations, SUNY Broome Trustees, faculty and staff, and members of the BCC Foundation Board.
The Foundation awarded over $1 million in support in 2018 and will hope to exceed that amount again this year.
The Foundation also will award many merit scholarships to incoming SUNY Broome freshmen for the Fall 2019 semester; they are recognized at awards ceremonies at their high schools.
