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. These internships must bear academic credit and can be proposed as an extension of an existing Hartwick course, a research grant, or an individual internship.
Baker-Simpson Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Program
Hartwick’s successful Baker-Simpson program has evolved into focusing on entrepreneurship opportunities for ambitious female students in any major. Five rising seniors receive funding to spend their summer immersed in a Silicon Valley start-up where they contribute to every aspect of the business enterprise. Hartwick alumnus Simon Baker ’93 developed the program in partnership with his mentor and fellow entrepreneur, Barclay Simpson.
The Cyrus Mehri ’83 Global Pluralism Fellowship
The College community is enriched and assumptions are challenged, thanks to the investments of Cyrus Mehri ’83, a prominent class action and civil rights attorney and founding partner of the law firm Mehri & Skalet, PLLC, in Washington, DC. One Mehri Global Pluralism Fellow is selected annually and given a stipend to bring topical programming to campus. To be considered, students should demonstrate commitment to pluralism, diversity, and concern for the human condition.
