ANHNA offers higher education grants

ANCRAMDALE – For the seventh year, as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation serving the Town of Ancram, including Ancramdale and Boston Corners, the Ancramdale Neighbors Helping Neighbors Association (ANHNA) again offers higher education grants to help full-time students who will enter an accredited college, community college, or vocational school this fall.

The grants are intended to help students pay for food, clothing, books or transportation during the first year of continuing education, and will be based on financial need. In the past ANHNA awarded grants of $1,000 to $1,500 to qualified students. Preference will go to first-year students, but all continuing college, vocational and graduate students may apply.

Be assured, as schedules change due to the pandemic, the association will work with eligible students to complete their application.

To apply for a grant a student needs to be a resident of the Town of Ancram and should already be accepted into an academic or vocational program that begins in 2020. Students should submit an application with a letter describing their educational plans and the need for additional financial support as well as documentation of financial need and college acceptance.

Interested students or parents should contact Mike Sturdivant at 518-329-6106 or Laura Ponkos at 518-329-2031 or email for more information.

The application deadline is July 1.
