The scholarship program will be called the “2020 Forever Orange Scholarship” and graduating seniors who enroll full-time in graduate degree or certificate programs at Syracuse will be eligible.

“You and your classmates have adjusted to online learning and missed out on much-anticipated activities ahead of receiving your degree,” interim vice chancellor and provost Zhanjiang Liu and dean of the Graduate School Peter Vanable said in an e-mail to students. “You will be facing a job market that may be much different than you anticipated, prompting more thought about graduate studies.
