Philosophy & Purpose

The Edward J. Kumar Administration and Finance Scholarship was established in 2007 to recognize and provide financial means for incoming or current students (or students, if the fund balance allows multiple awards in a given year) who are related to a current or retired employee of the Division of Administration & Finance, Brockport Auxiliary Service Corporation (BASC), or the Research Foundation at SUNY Brockport. The funds are disbursed to recipients as non-tuition educational expense grants that may be used to cover educational costs such as room, board or college fees.

Recipient Selection Process

The Edward J. Kumar Administration & Finance Scholarship is a competitive scholarship that is fortunate enough to provide at least one, if not multiple, $1,000 awards annually to eligible students.

A Selection Committee consisting of direct reporting staff to the current Vice President for Administration & Finance will select the annual recipient/recipients based on the criteria outlined for this scholarship, with preference given to the student(s) with the greatest financial need. The Foundation Scholarship Office will verify financial need based on the FAFSA filed by the student(s).

The Selection Committee will notify the Brockport Foundation’s Scholarship Office of the committee’s selection each spring. The Scholarship Office will vet the selection and then notify the recipient(s) and the Vice President for Administrative Services Emeritus Edward J. Kumar.
