August 2, 2012

Assemblyman Al Graf (R,C–Holbrook) is promoting a scholarship available through the Cadet Appointment Program at SUNY Maritime College. First year college students that meet grade-based requirements are eligible for a full tuition scholarship that offers world travel, career placement and a top-notch education. Assemblyman Graf gets a single appointment every two years, meaning that the opportunity is on a first-come, first-served basis.

“The Cadet Appointment Program is an invaluable opportunity for Long Island’s young adults to grow academically, professionally and personally,” said Graf. “SUNY Maritime’s program has so much to offer, opening the door to service with the United States Coast Guard while boasting a 100 percent career placement rate. I implore our youth who have recently graduated high school to consider this amazing opportunity and contact my office for further details.”

Applicants must be high school graduates or have attained an equivalent diploma. Minimum academic requirements are a Grade Point Average of 90 and 1100 SAT/24 ACT score. Applications are due through Maritime College in February of 2013. For more information, please visit, or contact Assemblyman Graf by calling 631-589-8685, or emailing him at
