Annual NCCSA Scholarship Awarded
NCCSA established a Human Services Scholarship in 2014 with the guidance of the Northern New York Community Foundation. The Board of Directors felt this was a meaningful way to ensure the success of local students pursuing a social science career path.
The Board of Directors for the North Country Council of Social Agencies has established a scholarship fund for non-traditional students with the guidance of the Northern New York Community Foundation. In order to qualify for the scholarship a student can be full or part-time in Jefferson and Lewis Counties who are at minimum in their third year of study or
junior year of college. Additionally, students who have completed a bachelor’s degree, working toward Master’s in human services will be considered. Preference will be given to students who have shown an effort to provide community service hours.
At the August, 2014 anniversary celebration Megan Rexford of Adams, New York, was awarded the first scholarship. Megan is attending Cazenovia College, Cazenovia, New York and is a third year Human Service major.
