Grants & Scholarships
Since 2000 alone, Advocates for Upstate has awarded nearly $4 million in grants to benefit patient care, patient education and scholarships. Advocates Youth Scholarships are awarded to qualifying high school students who volunteer at Upstate. The Nellie Hurley Scholarships are awarded to qualifying Upstate employees and adult volunteers to pursue studies in health professions at an accredited institution.
Our grant and scholarship programs are supported by our contract partners- Telehealth (patient TVs), Cafe Kubal, Lori's Gift Shop, Bee Loved Gifts, American Food & Vending and its Perk Up Cafe- all located across Upstate's campuses. Every purchase you make at these retail sites benefit Advocates for Upstate, and in turn, Upstate patients and staff.
