The Emerald Creek Scholarship Foundation aims to provide support and assistance to young outstanding students. Students who illustrate excellence will be eligible to receive up to $10,000 towards their continuing education.
While there is no doubt that America is the land of opportunity, far too often children aren't given the necessary tools to succeed. By providing financial assistance to high school seniors, our foundation can help open the doors to a world of opportunity.

Emerald Creek Capital is proud to present Kelly Pellegrino with this year's Emerald Creek Scholarship. Kelly will receive $10,000 towards her college tuition at Cornell University.
Kelly's accomplishments are impressive. As a member of the Bronx High School of Science ARISTA Program Kelly displayed a strong desire to better her knowledge and understanding of the world around us. Her accomplishments include actively conducting research at New York University.
Under the supervision of Dr. Brice Kuhl, Kelly participated in original research on memory cells and the circumstances under which they are most accurate. Kelly was also retained by The Cambridge Business Institute after writing a proposal on training and certifying unemployed workers as a means to lower unemployment. That proposal has recently been implemented.
