The Thomas Conaty Memorial Scholarship Fund, administered by the Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains, was established by the family of Mr. Conaty to award a college scholarship to a student from the Blue Ridge, Elk Lake, or Montrose Area school districts who will pursue a degree in business or a related field and who has demonstrated a record of community service.

John J. & Ann Vitale Scholarship


College Seniors and graduate school students who will complete their studies during the 2016-2017 academic year are encouraged to apply for The John J. & Ann Vitale Scholarship at The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains at our website: The scholarship is available to alumni from the six school districts in Susquehanna County who are in their final year of college or in graduate school and who have incurred student debt. The award for 2016 is $2,000 and if undergraduate students attend college within Pennsylvania they will be nominated for potential matching grants.

Students are encouraged to apply now online. The deadline for completed online applications is August 1, 2016. The scholarship recipient will be chosen during the summer to ensure timely payment directly to the college so that the student may make appropriate financial plans.
John Vitale passed away in March of 2006, after a lifetime of supporting his community and neighbors. This scholarship is one way his family has chosen to honor his memory and continue a tradition of community support.
