As competition among universities for the best students intensifies and as government funding continues to shrink, City College’s commitment to educating the best, regardless of a student's financial background, remains steadfast. Through undergraduate scholarship, graduate fellowship and opportunity funds, you can help steward gifted students as they embark on a lifetime of achievement.
Today, one of these programs below, we continue to recruit and retain the best and brightest at City College. Many of our students focus on the STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), while others pursue the myriad social sciences and humanities programs that City College offers. With the support of donors, these talented students receive not only tuition support but also unique educational experiences beyond the classroom, such as access to competitive research projects, international study abroad and specialized internships, to realize their leadership potential. Through philanthropy, City College is able to nurture future generations of world-class leaders by providing these highly deserving students with opportunities they otherwise would not have.
