The Herkimer Region College & Career Scholarship Foundation is a not-for-profit community scholarship foundation. Local citizens from many professions work voluntarily to generate scholarship funds for graduates of technical programs in our region. These technical programs may be those in place at Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES or one of the 10 component districts.

The component school districts are Central Valley, Dolgeville, Frankfort-Schuyler, Herkimer, Little Falls, Mount Markham, Owen D. Young, Poland, Richfield Springs and West Canada Valley.

Since 1991, more than $204,000 has been given out through more than 350 scholarships distributed to students seeking to combine their technical education training with accredited college study.
