Textbook Grants

Barnes & Noble and Campus Auxiliary Services are committed to excellence and want to do everything possible to support the academic progress of those within the campus community.

In keeping with this commitment and the spirit of partnership, Barnes & Noble awards textbook grants for students at SUNY Geneseo to use at the Barnes & Noble-operated SUNY Geneseo Bookstore.
