Carolyn Cianciosa

March 8, 2021

For more than 20 years, Carolyn Cianciosa was a faculty member at SUNY Niagara. She had a critical role in establishing the Radiologic Technology (Rad Tech) program. Carolyn took pride in growing Rad Tech from 13 to 100 students before she retired in 2012. Sadly, Carolyn passed away on June 25, 2017.

To honor Carolyn’s memory, celebrate her 65th birthday, and carry on her legacy, her husband Robert Cianciosa established the Carolyn L. Cianciosa Memorial Scholarship at SUNY Niagara. Family and friends contributed to Carolyn’s scholarship recognizing that education and healthcare had always been an integral part of her life.

Students may apply for the Carolyn L. Cianciosa Memorial Scholarship and many other SUNY Niagara scholarships through the AwardSpring Scholarship System on SUNY Niagara’s website at The deadline to apply for fall 2021 scholarships is March 19, 2021.

If you would like more information about making a donation or establishing a scholarship, please contact Barbara DeSimone, SUNY Niagara Foundation Director at 716-614-5904 or email
