About President's Challenge Scholarship

President’s Challenge Scholarship is awarded to eighth-grade, first-generation, college-bound students upon graduation from high school. Recipients, identified by the sponsoring school district receive guidance counseling and mentoring throughout high school and are awarded a two-year, tuition-free, college education at SUNY Ulster.

"This initiative will help us make higher education a reality for students in our county who might not otherwise pursue a college education. Motivating students to think about their future educational plans while they are in eighth grade is just the beginning. The lives of the students who participate in this program will be changed forever.”  —Dr. Alan P. Roberts, President, SUNY Ulster

Student Eligibility Requirements to Apply

  • First-generation, college-bound students
  • 80% cumulative GPA in eighth grade
  • 75% cumulative GPA in four core classes (English, Math, Science and Social Studies) through mid-April
  • 85% or higher attendance in school
  • Minimal discipline infractions
  • Preference given to students with economic need

Cost of Sponsoring a Student

$7,200 to sponsor a student to attend SUNY Ulster for 2 years with either a one-time donation of $7,200 or four annual payments of $1,800.


“This is really going to change my life!” 

—Rondout Valley Central School District President’s Challenge Scholarship Recipient
