The NYSAAF and NYSSA offer an annual scholarship program which is available to students who are New
York State residents, who currently are (or have previously been) active in a fair that is a member of the
NYSAAF or the NYSSA and who plan to attend (or already attend) college in pursuit of a degree. The fair
where you have been active or the NYSSA must endorse your application and will submit it for you. Our
website www.nyfairs.org offers a complete list of our member fairs.
Applicant must be in his/her senior year of high school in New York State or be a New York State resident already attending college and planning to pursue or already pursuing a degree at an accredited institution of higher learning.
Purpose: To provide financial assistance to those high school and college students who have been active in their local fairs and who intend to pursue or who are pursuing a degree. Application is open to all applicants regardless of your field of study. However, additional consideration may be given to those applicants pursuing a degree in a field related to agriculture, fair management or the outdoor amusement business. All are encouraged to apply.
