The SUNY Sullivan Foundation works to secure private funds used to supplement the college's traditional revenue sources. In doing so, the Foundation provides scholarship assistance, funding for equipment and enrichment programs, and the ability to enhance and strengthen selected academic areas and programs that prepare a student for life after formal education. SUNY Sullivan awards approximately $100,000 in scholarships each year, made possible by generous contributions from alumni, donors, friends and neighbors.
