Funded Fellowships and International Opportunities

The Duffy Family Ambassador Fund Scholarship

The Duffy Family Ambassador Fund Scholarship was established in 1999 by former Hartwick Trustee John Duffy and his wife, Anne Duffy, parents of Hilary Duffy ’91 and Kevin Duffy ’95 to support educational travel abroad by Hartwick College students. These $5,000 scholarships are awarded annually to students who have demonstrated financial need and have presented a strong case for their proposed program abroad. Duffy Scholarships are specifically intended for individual students to have an in-depth, one-on-one experience in other cultures.

The Emerson International Internship Scholarship

The Emerson International Internship Scholarship was established in 1996 by Fred L. Emerson, president of Dunn & McCarthy, Inc in Auburn NY to enable Hartwick sophomores, juniors, and seniors to expand their postgraduate career options through international internships. The Emerson International Internship Scholarship provides $3,000 to $5,000 grants for students from any major to pursue their interests in an international setting.

The Cyrus Mehri ’83 Global Pluralism Fellowship

The Global Pluralism Fellowship was established by Cyrus Mehri, Esq., ’83 to support a student who shares Hartwick’s deep commitment to global pluralism– to bring people of the broadest range of backgrounds, ethnicities, and life experiences into our learning community. This commitment springs from our educational purpose: to prepare people to contribute as active, thoughtful citizens to the world of their future. Those considered for the fellowship must demonstrate commitment to pluralism, diversity, and concern for the human condition and/or environs. The award supports one student and a mentor through the Fellowship in developing and implementing programs, events, and projects proposed to meet the goals of the Global Pluralism Fellowship.

The Baker-Simpson Entrepreneurial Fellowship

The Baker-Simpson Entrepreneurial Fellowship Program was envisioned by Simon Baker ’93, and first funded by his generous donation in spring 2014. Simon’s Hartwick experiences as a double major in economics and French and as a Division I Soccer Player set his course for a career in financial management and entrepreneurship. He is the founder of BakerAvenue Asset Management and chairman of the investment committee. He oversees the investment process and leads the development of BakerAvenue’s strategies and services. Simon’s donation funds an unparalleled opportunity for at least 5 of Hartwick’s top students who imagine themselves as entrepreneurs.

The competitive program selects Fellows for a summer immersion in a start-up business where they contribute to multiple aspects of the enterprise. Upon their return to campus in fall they share their experiences with the community, advise the next cohort of applicants, speak at both alumni and admissions events and are recognized at the spring Student Showcase. Simon has not only funded the Fellows Program; he donates his time to the mentoring of each Fellow. His generosity evidences his dedication to a sustainable Hartwick.
