Join The Council

Explore the benefits of membership by joining the New York State Council of School Superintendents.

The Raymond R. Delaney Memorial Scholarship was inaugurated during the centennial year of The Council in 1983 in honor of "100 Years of Educational Leadership." In 1990, it was renamed as the Raymond R. Delaney Annual Memorial Scholarship in memory of a past president of NYSCOSS.

The scholarship is awarded annually to one individual enrolled in a graduate study program through which a School District Administrator Certificate or Doctoral Degree may be earned. Applicants must be nominated by an active superintendent of The Council with this nomination form. Council staff will then contact each applicant directly. 

Candidates are responsible for sending all materials by the deadline. Review this brochure for details about how to submit all materials. 

The Distinguished Service Committee, composed of current Council presidents and past presidents who are active superintendents, screens all applications and credentials for selection of one candidate.

Special thanks to Signature Partner Utica National Insurance Group for their sponsorship of this scholarship.
