The Carla Decker Scholarship has been awarded to deserving students since 2009. The purpose of this award is to encourage an interest in history and related fields by recognizing those, from the Hudson Highlands, who've demonstrated this interest through participation in activities that relate to the local histories of the area.
Carla Decker, a long standing member of the Historical Society, generously donated the award to assist the recipients in the pursuit of their education goals.
Anyone interested in applying should download the application on the website.
Application deadline: Applications will be available through guidance offices at local and regional schools and on our website by February 1 of the awarding year. Applications will be due no later than June 15 of the awarding year. The scholarship will be awarded soon after and the scholarship recipient will be officially introduced at the Historical Society Annual Meeting in October.
