Past Recipients

The Paul Rickard Scholarship was established in 2006 for a SUNY Orange men’s basketball player only. After Paul’s death in 2017, the scholarship transitioned to the Paul Rickard Memorial Scholarship and a second scholarship was added for a SUNY Orange student studying Mathematics, Engineering or Physics. From this point moving forward, two scholarships will be awarded each year.
