Community Service Scholarships

The John P.E. Brown '35 Scholarship was established in memory of John P. E. Brown, a member of the College's board of trustees for 52 years.  It is awarded to students who have outstanding academic records and are active volunteers.

The William A. Scoones Community Service Award celebrates Bill Scoones's lifetime example of service both to Ithaca College and the greater Ithaca community.  It is awarded annually to two rising upper-class students who have made significant contributions to the community through service work.


Involvement Awards

Involvement Scholarships

The Anne Siegel '81 Memorial Scholarship was established through gifts to the College from the family and friends of the late Anne Siegel.   It is awarded to rising juniors or seniors who most closely personify the qualities and attributes of Anne Siegel, including good academic performance and involvement in the extracurricular life of the College.

The William Bingham Foundation Endowed Scholarship is awarded to outstanding students who exhibit outstanding leadership and involvement in the Ithaca College community.

Student Governance Council Scholarships

The SGC Scholarship is awarded in recognition of demonstrated leadership qualities and active participation in a wide range of campus organizations.

This year's recipient of the Margaret A. Reid scholarship is Utkarsh Maini, Class of 2024.  Margaret A. Reid was an Ithaca College student and the bookkeeper on the Executive Board of the Student Government Association as a sophomore for the 1984-1985 academic year. Shortly after returning home for the summer before her junior year, Margaret passed away due to a small and undetected tumor in her brain.  She donated her corneas and kidneys to those in need. The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize current Ithaca College students who embody the same spirit of involvement and dedication as Margaret. She was an excellent student leader, and she understood the great value that participation on campus can lend to an education.
