Scholarship applications now available through local foundation
Feb. 4, 2015


The Herkimer Region College & Career Scholarship Foundation is accepting applications for scholarships for the 2015-2016 college year. Each year, this local foundation presents about a dozen scholarships.

Students eligible for these scholarships include those who are majoring in vocational education in their high school program and plan to go to college next year. This includes virtually all students enrolled in the Career and Technical Education Center located at Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES. Also eligible are those adults who wish to enroll in vocational training, such as practical nursing, at Herkimer BOCES.

There are special incentive awards available for those pursuing careers in certain areas. The Paul A. Bouck Memorial Fund provides a scholarship to a student who is entering a field of study that relates to agriculture, a rural-related field or other related areas. The Robert A. Moore Memorial Scholarship provides a scholarship to a student who has completed the Herkimer BOCES visual communications media arts program and plans to further training in the field of radio and television broadcasting. The Special Nursing Fund provides a scholarship to a nursing student in need of financial assistance. These special funds are administered by the Herkimer Region College & Career Scholarship Foundation and are in addition to the scholarships offered through the general fund.

Application forms are now available from guidance counselors in all Herkimer BOCES area school districts, the Career Tech Center office at the Herkimer BOCES complex in East Herkimer by calling Vicki Devereese at Herkimer BOCES at 315-867-2007 or by downloading it by clicking here.

The deadline for submitting an application is March 27, 2015.

The Herkimer Region College & Career Scholarship Foundation is unique because all scholarships go to vocational education majors, Herkimer Region College & Career Scholarship Foundation Board President Harrison Hummel IV said. Among the colleges being attended by winners of last year’s scholarships are Herkimer College, Albright College, Divers Academy International, Western Carolina University, the State University of New York at Plattsburgh and Mohawk Valley Community College. Several nursing students were awarded scholarships to attend the Herkimer BOCES School for Practical Nursing.
