Scholarship deadline April 1

Community Foundation HV Logo

The Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley has scholarship money available - some of it exclusively for Poughkeepsie High School students!

Deadline to complete application is Thursday, April 1.

Five of the 34 scholarships listed on the CFHV Scholarship Opportunities Page are restricted to Poughkeepsie City School District students.

Students won’t have to spend all week filling out application after application as the site offers a common application - fill out one application for all scholarships. Different supplemental materials may be required for each. If students are not sure which scholarships they’re eligible for, a quiz built into the application will tell them. The five PCSD-specific scholarships are:

  • Barbara and John F. DeGilio Science Scholarship
  • David Jagaciewski Scholarship (for students who choose to pursue a career in arts, architecture, engineering, interior or fashion design, family or consumer science or landscape architecture.)
  • John J. Csizmar Memorial Scholarship (good character and financial need)
  • Pawith Educators Scholarship (community service)
  • Poughkeepsie High School Class of 1958 Scholarship (dedicated to those students who must apply themselves to succeed).
