The 2023 Sullivan 180 scholarship application is now available. The scholarship program recognizes volunteer efforts in projects that support the Sullivan 180 mission to build a healthy community through people, places and policy; with an intentional focus on prevention and empowering a healthier generation. Communities and organizations participating in the 2023 Sullivan 180 grant program welcome volunteer assistance in gardening, beautification, caring for public spaces, project documentation, outreach or fundraising.
The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, through a donor-advised fund established by Sullivan 180, offers a limited number of scholarships to Sullivan County residents who volunteer in a significant way with a Sullivan 180 project. Scholarships are announced in September and are applied toward the 2024 spring semester at an undergraduate college of one’s choice. Applications are due by Aug. 18, 2023, and must be completed electronically via the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan’s Online Portal. Applicants must submit a personal essay explaining the volunteer experience and how it impacted them personally, a letter of recommendation from the Sullivan 180 project leader, a letter of recommendation from a member of the community or other non-relative and photos from the volunteer experience. Visit Sullivan180.org for directions and links for applying.
