Education Awards

In the spring we usually post an education award for graduating high school seniors.

In the fall we usually post an education award available to women who are continuing their schooling after a year or more away from the educational setting OR who have completed one or more years of uninterrupted undergraduate study at the university level and plan to continue.

Eligible applicants must be women who live in Otsego County.
