On May 9, 2023, over 600 people gathered in a sea of folding chairs inside SUNY Broome’s Ice Center. Students, friends, family, scholarship donors, professors, and college employees attended the Student Awards Recognition Reception to recognize the academic efforts of scholarship winners and the philanthropy of the countless donors who make it all possible.

This year, over 420 scholarships were given to help incoming, continuing, graduating, and transferring students afford their college education. These scholarships award a range of amounts from $200 to the multi-year full-tuition coverage of the Presidential Honors Scholarship. The average scholarship is worth $500.

In 2023, the Foundation had six brand-new scholarships.

Supporting International Opportunities

Celebrating Storytelling and Heritage

SUNY Broome and Universidad de Celaya students explore each other’s cultures to create storytelling exhibit

The Gallery @ SUNY Broome was overflowing with faculty, staff, students, and friends of the College on June 8, 2023, in honor of the debut of the Storytelling and Heritage exhibit, curated collaboratively by a group of anthropology students from SUNY Broome and the Universidad de Celaya, Mexico. The exhibit showcased a collection of photographs, interviews, and artistic pieces depicting Mexican and American cultures. The event resulted from the overwhelming success of Anthropology 288: Storytelling and Heritage, an invitation-only travel course designed to highlight the power of storytelling and its ability to bridge cultural gaps.

“A few of the SUNY Broome students who participated in the course had previously never left the country, so the impact of this type of international, experiential learning was even more significant. Courses like ANT 288 truly enrich our students’ lives,” said Professor Kathleen McKenna.

Ways You Can Help

Donations empower students to complete their goals and provide financial support and educational opportunities. With increasing college costs, living expenses, and economic hardship, many cannot afford college without financial assistance.

Scholarships & Grants-In-Aid

Over 420 need-based or merit-based scholarships are awarded annually to deserving students. Because of private support, hundreds of students are recognized for their hard work and can achieve their goals with less debt.

SUNY Broome also awards many students in need with grants-in-aid, without requiring them to apply for the assistance (which is necessary to be considered for a scholarship).

Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund helps SUNY Broome students in troubling times to stay in college and move into a brighter tomorrow. The fund grants up to $500 or documented emergency expenses such as unexpected medical bills, car repairs, and more to students in need.

Faculty Development

Faculty development donations support expanded and updated professional knowledge for our faculty and staff and create resources for unique faculty and student projects.

Campus Enhancements

Our mission also includes providing the college with the funding to enhance our campus and acquire modern, up-to-date equipment, which keeps SUNY Broome at the forefront of innovation and technology.

Scholarships Give Students a Boost

Donors not only create financial support for students in need, but, in the case of scholarship recipients, they create an emotional boost as students realize that someone has invested in their  future.
