A.L.Kellogg Scholarship & Memorial Fund

A.L. Kellogg Education Fund



Delaware Academy Central School District at Delhi Graduates:


On June 19, 1989, Delaware Academy Central School District at Delhi (formerly Delhi Central School) received money bequeathed from the Judge Abraham L. Kellogg Trust.  On that date, Attorney General Robert Abrams stated in a press release that the District’s plan to utilize a portion of “the income from the money bequeathed to the school district will provide a permanent legacy to the area, in the form of a $3 million dollar perpetual scholarship fund for graduates of Delaware Academy Central School District at Delhi” beginning with the class of 1987.


We encourage every graduate who has, or is, furthering his/her education to submit an application.  Every graduate has an opportunity to qualify for a scholarship if they are or have been successful in continuing their education.  All former graduates who have completed their freshman, sophomore, junior or senior year of college are eligible for a scholarship if all the guidelines are met and the application has been filed.


The Scholarship Program is funded through the annual investment earnings of the Abraham L. Kellogg Educational Fund.  In order to preserve this program in perpetuity the total amount of awards provided in any particular year may not exceed the investment earnings of the Abraham L. Kellogg Educational Fund.  Therefore, the Scholarship Committee shall annually recommend to the Delaware Academy Central School District at Delhi Board of Education the percentage level at which awards will be provided.  The Board of Education will make the final decision regarding such percentage based upon the committee’s recommendations and performance of the fund. The percentage will be calculated by dividing the investment earnings of the Scholarship Fund by the total eligible awards of all applicants.  Each applicant will receive their maximum award multiplied by the approved percentage.


We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity.  If you have any questions, please call 607-746-1304.
