To the editor:

The Adirondack Community Trust (ACT) is grateful to be able to offer nearly $200,000 in scholarship awards this spring. Students and families seeking financial aid for higher education can learn more by contacting their school guidance counselor by visiting, where there is a list of the wide variety of scholarship grants available to Adirondack students, application information, and deadlines for submission.

Please don't hesitate - deadline for most applications is April 15. These scholarships were established by generous people who understand both the value of education and its cost. They want their gifts to be used to help area students achieve their educational and life-time goals.

In turn, by taking advantage of scholarship assistance, you are helping a donor achieve his or her philanthropic goal.

ACT, the community foundation serving the Adirondack region, is the giving vehicle for thousands of generous people who care about education, arts, health and human services, flood relief, recreation, animal welfare, you name it. For information about enlisting ACT to carry out your philanthropic dreams, contact Cali Brooks, executive director at 518-523-9904 or email
