Description

Applicants will be considered based on the following criteria: academic achievement; demonstrated leadership in their school; and demonstrated involvement in their community, contributing at least 50 valuable hours of volunteer service each year of high school. Applicants must be seniors attending public high schools in New York City's five boroughs or surrounding New York counties. After an initial review of all applications, the finalists will be selected for interviews with the Selection Committee. Interviews will be scheduled in late March for selected candidates. Students will be notified if they have been selected to receive an award by April 13, 2018. Award recipients may be invited to receive their awards at FSCNY's 26th Annual Conference Scholarship Luncheon, to be held at the Brooklyn Marriott Hotel April 26, 2018. Additional details will be made available to scholarship winners at a later date. Several scholarships will be issued to selected recipients consisting of a one-time cash award to be applied towards the cost of their freshman year of study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university. The cash award for each of the selected winners will range between $2,000 and $7,500 based on the recommendations of the Selection Committee.
