Scholarships for New York City Students, 2009-2010
New Visions for Public Schools
A college education is an important investment in an individual's future. In fact, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, college graduates earn twice as much income as high school graduates over a lifetime. While the expense of attending college is significant, the benefits associated with a college degree dramatically outweigh the costs. Financial aid in the form of scholarships and grants, loans and federal work-study can make it possible for individuals to go to college even if they and their families cannot afford the full cost of tuition, room and board. The most attractive types of financial aid come in the form of scholarships and grants, as it is money that individuals do not have to pay back. Scholarships are great ways to both help lower the amount of tuition and fees that they and their families have to pay, as well as the loans a college may expect them to take out. Like the college search process, the scholarship application process requires a lot of research and hard work. This scholarship guide provides a great starting point and focuses on scholarships available to students who live in New York City. It is designed to help students find scholarships that fit their interests and qualifications. Because some scholarships fall into multiple categories, they are encouraged to check the index at the end of the guide for a complete listing.
