The Schenectady Foundation awards several scholarships eligible to residents of Schenectady County. 

Our scholarship programs are:

  • Student Achievement Scholarship -- this is the Foundation's general scholarship fund which can be awarded to any qualified applicants seeking to advance their education.
  • Schenectady STEM scholarship - for graduating seniors of Schenectady High School intending to pursue a degree in a STEM field.
  • Anna Hudson Erbacher scholarship -- for graduating seniors of schools in Schenectady County that will pursue degrees preparing them to become educators.
  • Dave Goyette Memorial Vocational scholarship -- to promote entry or advancement in vocational fields by learning skilled trades.

The three named scholarships have been established by generous donors who had the vision of leaving a legacy to help students now and far into the future. These scholarships support students in specific fields of study as determined by the donor's wishes.
