Hartwick Announces

$10,000 Scholarships

For All NY Students

Unlike Cuomo’s Excelsior Program,

President Drugovich: “We chose the name ‘Founders’ Award’ as a tribute to the many generous supporters of the College who have made a Hartwick education affordable for students over these last two centuries.”

ONEONTA – Hartwick College announced today it will provide a $10,000 Founders’ Award scholarships to each newly enrolled first-year and transfer student who is a resident of New York State, beginning in fall 2018.

Historically, 75 percent of Hartwick students are New Yorkers.

“This new award is intended to send a clear message to families from New York state that we understand their concerns about college affordability,” President Margaret L. Drugovich. “… Many Hartwick alumni have told me that they could not have obtained their Hartwick education except for the generosity of others. The Founders’ Award continues that tradition.”

Hartwick Shows Off Centerpiece Of $67M In Campus Upgrades

Drugovich Leads Tour Of Founders’ Way

Hartwick Shows Off

Centerpiece Of $67M

In Campus Upgrades

Hartwick College President Margaret Drugovich, in pink suit in top photo, and the tour she is leading, pause this morning at the campus’ new pergola on Founders’ Way, the brand-new pedestrian-friendly centerpiece of the Oneonta college’s $67 million in upgrades, renovations and new construction now coming to completion.  Drugovich led the inaugural tour of the walkway, which replaces Hartwick Drive, (formerly the main driveway into the campus), intended to maximize the college’s famous view of the northern Catskills, and adding space for students and others to pause, sit and enjoy the ambiance.  The tour occurred during “True Blue Weekend,” college’s homecoming, which coincides with a meeting of the board of trustees.  At right, Francis Landrey, trustees’ chair, right, Drugovich and student Joseph Zeigler ’99, who participated in the building committee, unveil a rendering of Founders’ Way at a ceremony at the tour’s completion.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
