SVEAA Scholarship Program

Each year, the SVEAA awards scholarships to graduating SVE seniors.  Our scholarship efforts began in 2014 with two scholarship awards.  To date, we have proudly awarded $48,000 to 29 graduating seniors pursuing college, university, and technical school education.

Application criteria is as follows:

  • Graduating seniors of Spencer Van Etten Central School District continuing his or her education immediately following graduation.
  • Students attending an accredited two-year or four-year college or university.
  • Students attending a trade or vocational school.

In 2023, the SVE Alumni Association is proud to offer nine scholarship opportunities!  They are:

SVE Alumni Association College Scholarship (two awards)

SVE Alumni Association Trade Scholarship (one award)

The Riess Family Foundation College Scholarship (four awards)

Vergason Technology Inc. Trade Scholarship (one award)

The Lillian Williams Memorial Trade Scholarship (one award)

SVE seniors are encouraged to apply for ALL scholarships that they feel they may qualify for.
