Young Scholars Liberty Partnerships Program awarded $25,000 grant

Michael Damsky - Young Scholars Grant 2019

The Young Scholars Liberty Partnerships Program at Utica College is receiving help to continue the crucial work it provides in the enrichment of area students thanks to a grant from the Million Dollar Round Table Foundation and the trustee emeritus who worked to obtain it.

Trustee emeritus Michael Damsky presented Utica College President Laura Casamento with a $25,000 grant from the Million Dollar Round Table Foundation this past Spring.

The grant, obtained through the work of Damsky, will go toward extending and improving the Utica Advantage Internship Project for the Young Scholars Liberty Partnerships Program at UC. 

Through educational and social skills development, the Young Scholars Liberty Partnerships Program enriches the community by motivating students to achieve college and career readiness for life-long success.

Students in the Young Scholars LPP participate in a comprehensive program providing academic, social and cultural enrichment. It is the intent of the Young Scholars LPP to help students achieve academic success by maintaining an A or B average, earning a New York State Regents Diploma with the Advanced Designation and enrolling in post-secondary education. The Young Scholars LPP also seeks to develop students' personal characteristics, making strong individuals who are invested in their community.

The Million Dollar Round Table Foundation is the charitable arm of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), whose mission is to increase member and industry participation and to provide funds to worthwhile charitable organizations throughout the world.
