Created by Helga R. Karker, class of 1955G, in memory of her father, Dr. Albert Reissner, this endowed scholarship for students majoring in environmental sciences with a demonstrated need for financial assistance was awarded for the first time in the fall of 1995. First preference is given to women who are Environmental Science Program majors. Selections are determined by the Financial Aid Office.

Dr. John G. New Scholarship

The Dr. John G. New Scholarship has been established in memory of Dr. New, who served our College as professor and chair of the Biology Department. Dr. New was an advocate for environmental awareness and a driving force in the establishment of our Biological Field Station in Cooperstown. The scholarship will be awarded to ecology, environmental sciences or biology students who have proven academic achievement, interest in research, and who advocate that economic progress be compatible with a quality environment.
