Efforts by New York Daughters to meet our objective of Promotion of Education include:
New York State Cottages
For over 75 years, New York Daughters have been committed to helping the children at our DAR Schools realize their full potential. In addition to the usual DAR Schools Committee activities (such as monetary contributions, participation in the national school project, Friends of the Schools, collecting labels from Campbell's soups and other Swanson products, donations to thrift shops, and contributions to the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund), the New York Daughters provide financial and material support for three houses at two of the six DAR schools.
At Kate Duncan Smith DAR School, the Aebly-Howland Cottage and the Cuff North/South Duplex Cottage provide on-campus housing for three faculty members.
At Tamassee DAR School, the New York State Cottage provides a home environment for up to ten disadvantaged girls aged 6-10. Chapters become personally involved with the girls by sending them cards and letters, pocket money, birthday gifts, and Christmas gifts. Some chapters donate specific items from the houseparent's "wish list," such as the play gym provided by one chapter in 1999.
New York State Scholarships
The purpose of the DAR Scholarship Committee is to provide ways and means to aid worthy students to attain higher education. NSDAR administers 13 national scholarships. Many individual states, including New York, and some chapters also offer scholarships. The scholarships offered by the New York State Organization, NSDAR, are listed below.

Thank you for your interest in the various scholarships offered by the New York State Organization of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Regrettably, the current low interest environment will prohibit us from awarding new scholarships in 2013.
There is some good news! We have made arrangements for a new funding source, and we anticipate being able to award our scholarships again in 2014.
Please know how disappointed we are to take this one-year hiatus from helping wonderful young people to continue their academic pursuits, and please be sure to visit this site again next year for an update.
