Alumni Association Scholarship

Supporting our Legacy Students

For more than 30 years, the Alumni Association has recognized the special relationship that exists when different generations of the same family are represented at York College. During that time, more than 450 students have received Alumni Association Scholarships. 

Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year have closed and the Alumni Board has begun reviewing materials. All applicants will be notified about the final decision in April. 

The application for the 2020-2021 academic year will open the first week of January 2020.

Please direct any questions to the Alumni Relations Office by emailing or by calling 717.815.6642.
