Are you a newcomer to SUNY or have you changed roles in a SUNY advancement field over the past three years? If so, consider applying for the Charlton Scholars Program, which provides scholarships to select SUNYCUAD members for registration and on-site expenses to the SUNYCUAD Annual Educational Conference, June 7-9, in historic Tarrytown, NY.

The Harry and Barb Charlton Newcomer Scholarship Program is named in honor of the late Harry and Barb Charlton, long-time supporters of SUNY and SUNYCUAD.

Application guidelines and all other information can be found on the SUNYCUAD website Charlton Application.

Submissions will be reviewed by a committee consisting of SUNYCUAD Past Presidents, who will select and notify the winners by April 20. This year’s committee members are:

  • Maureen Winney, SUNY Empire State College (Committee Chair)
  • Nancy Griffin, SUNY Potsdam
  • Amy Kremenek, Onondaga Community College
  • Justin Culkowski, SUNY Environmental Science & Forestry (retired)
  • Kirk Starczewski, SUNY Empire State College
  • Loretta Lawrence Keane, Fashion Institute of Technology
  • Pat Hennessey, Westchester Community College
  • Roxanne Johnston, SUNY Brockport (emeritus)
  • Cynthia Cooper-Mapes, Monroe Community College
  • Dan Doyle, University at Albany

Applications for the scholarship must be submitted to Charlton Scholars Committee Chair Maureen Winney at maureen.winney@esc.edu by March 30, 2017.

We encourage all of our membership to share this information with their newcomer colleagues and encourage them to apply. It’s a great way to attend the conference with minimal costs and grow new enthusiastic members for SUNYCUAD.
