The Foundation awards summer enrichment grants annually to students who are residents of the East Greenbush Central School District, assisting them in attending programs that provide enrichment in many areas, including science, music, math, athletics, and leadership skills. Since its inception in 1985, the Foundation has distributed nearly $250,000 of summer enrichment grants to almost 2,500 students.

Summer Enrichment Requirements

In order to be eligible for a Summer Enrichment award, a student needs to be a resident of the East Greenbush Central School District, identify a summer enrichment program that he/she is interested in attending and complete and submit the Foundation's Summer Enrichment Application. Note that regardless of the student's age, the application must be completed by the student, not the parent or guardian.

In order to remain eligible for future awards, students are required to submit an age-appropriate letter addressed to the Foundation by the end of the summer, summarizing the program that was attended. Photos, artwork and other mementos are appreciated, and will be displayed in the local libraries the following spring, as well as used in future brochures highlighting the good works of the Foundation.
