George J. Russ Memorial Scholarship Fund

George J. Russ Memorial Scholarship

George J. Russ, CSF Class of 1969, passed away in 2015 and left a significant gift to the Fund through his estate. In fact, it was the largest alumni contribution in the history of the CSF.  George was a caddie at the Hudson River Club in Yonkers, NY and received a scholarship to attend Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. With the help of his family and friends, we established the George J. Russ Memorial Scholarship to pay tribute to George and pay it forward in a way that would have pleased him.  In keeping with George’s long and successful career in engineering, the scholarship is intended for caddies pursuing studies in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields. The most recent recipients are listed below.
