The Halsey Fund

The Halsey Fund, a permanent endowment for scholarships, is named in honor of Woodruff W. Halsey II — former president, executive director, resident director and teacher. Established in 2011, the Halsey Fund enables one student per year to receive generous financial aid as well as a stipend for round-trip airfare to the SYA school of enrollment.

The endowment was made possible through the generous gift of the Bulgari Family who donated $1.5 million to SYA: $1 million to the Halsey Fund, and $500,000 to provide funding for the now completed SYA Spain campus. Since the initial gift from the Bulgari family, other donors, including loyal alumni, parents and friends have also contributed to this fund and continue to do so each year.

The Halsey Fund scholarship addresses merit and demonstrated financial need by covering tuition for a student who is both academically gifted and could not attend SYA without financial assistance. In addition to tuition, the Halsey Fund provides a stipend for the recipient to cover the cost of round-trip airfare to the SYA school of enrollment.
