Paul & Maria Morra Scholarship Trust
Paul and Maria Morra Scholarship Trust Application Available
The application is now available for the Paul and Maria Morra Scholarship Trust which is administered by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties. The purpose of this scholarship trust is to honor the lives of Paul and Maria Morra (trust benefactors) and their commitment to preserving the natural resources of our region. Applicants must be pursuing further education in the field of horticulture, agriculture, forestry or natural resources.
Complete application packet must be received by April 1, 2017. Scholarship selection is not based solely on academic standing but greater emphasis is placed on the interest and motivation of the student to excel in their chosen field of study. Applicants should ensure their application packet responds very directly to the goals of the benefactors.

Calling All Cornell Alumi "Raise Your Hand Campaign!"
For the next couple of months we'd like to work with you to get as many alumni living in New York State to raise their hand. All it requires is clicking the link below and letting National 4-H know you are a proud alumni.
The Raise Your Hand campaign is not only a chance to be counted among alumni doing great work but when you stand with us your vote could win us $20,000 towards our programs!
Join us today, Raise Your Hand, ask your friends, neighbors, classmates, other 4-H members, and family to do the same. Jennifer Nettles did and so did her mom!
