Support Students in this New Presidential Era of SUNY PolyWOLE

SUNY Polytechnic Institute is proud to announce the creation of the Presidential Impact Fund, established in honor of our seventh president, Dr. Winston "Wole" Soboyejo, who has been with us since October and will be officially inaugurated on September 13, 2024.

This fund is dedicated to providing essential resources for advancing new initiatives that benefit our students.

"Our students are the north star that guides everything we do. Your gift to the Presidential Impact Fund will support student success, advance research and discovery opportunities, and ignite transformative initiatives at SUNY Poly.

Thank you for helping our students realize their aspirations at the university and beyond,” said Dr. Winston “Wole” Soboyejo, SUNY Poly President.

The Presidential Impact Fund will bolster SUNY Poly's commitment to fostering academic excellence, innovation, and student achievement. Join us in this endeavor to empower the next generation of leaders and innovators.

Student Scholarship Impact Messages

"I'm enrolled in the nursing program 1-2-1 and I am a freshman. The scholarship I have received from you means a lot and makes a big difference in my experience at SUNY Poly. I needed as much financial support as I could get because I wouldn't be able to work during year 2 and 3 because of the program. Your generous contribution is making a great difference in my education and career. I have never thought about doing the same, but you and others have inspired me to give back one day and help other students one day. Thank you for you help." - Michael P.

"Thank you very much for this support! Any help in benefiting my education is very much appreciated! I am a mechanical engineering student in his senior year and can't wait to take what I've learned over the years and apply it to the real world." - Dawson K.

"I want to thank you for the generous donation to my educational pursuits. Similarly to Julia O. Wells, I am an alumnus of Albany Memorial School of Nursing where my love for nursing, the spirit of giving, and the desire to always continue my education were fostered and allowed to blossom. I am currently in my first semester of the Family Nursing Practitioner program at SUNY Polytechnic Institute. It was a challenge and quite worrisome to find funding that would allow me to leave my place of employment to attend college full-time. What a wonderful surprise to find out that I was selected to receive one of your gracious gifts! I am eternally grateful." - Tia W.
