Spring 2020 Textbook Grants

Barnes & Noble recognizes the importance of students at SUNY Geneseo having all required textbooks and related instructional materials. Barnes & Noble, much like SUNY Geneseo students, is committed to excellence and wants to do everything possible to support the academic progress of those within the campus community that it supports.

In keeping with this commitment and in the spirit of partnership, Barnes & Noble is awarding Textbook Grants for students at SUNY Geneseo to use at the Barnes & Noble operated SUNY Geneseo Bookstore. Textbook grants will vary and be awarded each semester with the hopes that they can be used in conjunction with Barnes & Noble's used books, digital books and textbook rental options.
