  • Children’s Museum of Science and Technology
  • Troy Public Library
  • Frear Park Conservancy
  • Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County
  • Soldier’s Heart
  • DeFreestville Fire Department
  • Troy Waterfront Farmers Market Initiative
  • Downtown Troy BID

Preliminary Concept Applications and Project Outlines are due March 1, and applications can be found through the Sage Colleges website at:  http:///www.sage.edu/rubin

In addition to the application, the website offers a list of project awards since 1990, as well as the timeline for project applications. Grants are announced by June. 

The Rubin Community Fellows Program looks forward to another exciting year of community grant awards and encourages non-profit organizations and government agencies to download an application from The Sage Colleges website and consider applying today.
