Beth and Joe Bellanca Scholarship

This scholarship was established by Joe & Beth Bellanca to recognize an outstanding, incoming, first-time freshman student at SUNY Brockport who is expected to demonstrate the commitment and potential for excellence during and after their time at SUNY Brockport. The student must be a first generation college student, or a United States military veteran, or a participant in co-curricular activities while in high school. This scholarship supports one recipient per year and is renewable up to four academic years or eight consecutive semesters.

Eligible incoming students are considered for this opportunity based on their undergraduate admission 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.

Joe & Beth Bellanca have been long-time supporters of Joe’s alma mater (class of 1959). Joe was a standout football player during his days in the “green and gold” and has been a vital cog in keeping players of his era in touch with the current football program. He has been honored with induction into the Golden Eagle Athletic Hall of Fame (2011) and has been honored by the Brockport Alumni Association as well.
