CIS Scholarships

Arthur Maytum ScholarshipThe Arthur R. Maytum Scholarship commemorates Arthur R. Maytum (1866-1953), founder and former president of the Dunkirk and Fredonia Telephone Company, who also served as chairman of the Board of Visitors of the Fredonia Normal School and Teachers College from 1927 to 1953. In 1968, The State University of New York at Fredonia named the administration building after him. This endowment, made possible through the generosity of the Maytum family, funds several annual scholarships. Preference is given to Northern Chautauqua County students, based on merit and need.

The John Beck Memorial Scholarship commemorates Mr. John Beck, a long time employee of the Unisys Corporation who worked with The State University of New York at Fredonia for many years. The scholarship was made possible in part through the generosity of the Unisys Corporation and Mr. Beck's co-workers and colleagues. Computer Science majors are the preferred recipients of the scholarship, though a Mathematics major may be considered also. The criteria include financial need and academic achievement with a leaning toward academics.
