Rockland BOCES Scholarships
These opportunities clearly speak to our “welcoming spirit” to immigrants from at least 65 countries representing our student body. The message is “we care” and the funds will now allow “dreams to come true.”

The student artists featured at the gala are participating in a mentorship program organized by Bill Batson, the author and artist of Nyack Sketch Log published every Tuesday on NyackNewsAndViews.com.
Currently this is the only privately funded programs at Rockland BOCES that offer financial assistance to adult ESL students. It is our goal to continue this source of funding through scholarships for eligible adult ESL students interested in furthering their education. With support from our community and local businesses, we believe we will achieve our goal and look forward to awarding many more student scholarships.
