The Program

The Eisenhower College Alumni Association Scholarship, established in 1985 by the Eisenhower College Alumni Association, provides financial assistance to students who, in the judgment of alumni, best exemplify the goals of Eisenhower College, its World Studies program, and the ideals of Dwight D. Eisenhower.

To be considered for the scholarship, interested students should follow the process outlined in the instructions document. Submission of the scholarship application and an essay or media presentation based on one of the topics provided is required. Topics are designed to emphasize use of basic social studies knowledge (as taught in the New York State curriculum) and the student’s interpretation.

The Eisenhower College Alumni Association Scholarship is funded by the alumni association through contributions designated for this purpose. The alumni association is a non-profit organization.


The Eisenhower College Alumni Association Scholarship Program is open to any high school senior bound for college or any child of an Eisenhower alumnus/alumna. Applicants must plan to continue their studies beyond high school in a liberal arts program at either a two- or four-year college.

Scholarship Award

A one-time award of up to $1,000 can be used toward tuition and related expenses at the recipient’s college of choice. The scholarship award committee may opt to award two (2) $500 scholarships in a given year. The award committee also reserves the right not to award a scholarship based on the quality of submissions received. The decision of the scholarship award committee is final.

If you are interested in making a contribution to our scholarship fund, you may do so on the dues and gifts page of this site.
