Katharine M. Reichel Award (Reichel Series)

This scholarship recognizes an outstanding, incoming first time student who attended any high school in Monroe County, New York, or in a New York State school district where an Alpha Alpha member resides or is employed. The student must plan to attend SUNY Brockport to pursue a career in education, possess leadership qualities, outstanding academic ability, and potential for success in the education profession. The General Application reference should be a recommendation from a high school counselor and this application requires a second reference, one from another high school educator or administrator. Preference will be given to applicants who identify as female, but all applications will be considered.

As a Reichel Scholar, you have the ability to renew your scholarship for a total of four years at Brockport. Upon meeting the eligibility guidelines each year, the recipient will receive the Dorothy E. Foster Award for their sophomore year, in their junior year they will receive the Frances Moroney Whited Award, and in their senior year they will receive the Mary I. Luskey Award.

This is an Apply-To Opportunity. Applicants will need to submit one or more additional items to be considered for this award after submitting the General Application.

The financial assistance is in the form of a non-tuition educational expense grant that may be used to cover educational costs such as room, board or college fees. The award will be credited to the recipient’s bill during the semester(s) of the award period. The student must use this award for educational expenses at the College and may not receive the award in cash.
