How To Apply

The Scholarship Plus scholarship is for New York City students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement as well as the ability to overcome financial and other significant obstacles. 

Scholarship Plus offers such students a competitive four-year scholarship and individualized support. The scholarships may be used to pay tuition, room and board, fees, and other educational expenses.  Each scholarship will be renewable annually for up to four years of study as long as the student maintains a good academic record and makes standard progress toward a degree.


Applicants must be current high school seniors (graduating June 2018) who attend public, parochial or private schools in New York City, and have demonstrated:

  • Outstanding academic achievement (usually the top 10% of the high school graduating class)
  • Significant financial need
  • Success in overcoming adversity
  • A commitment to community service

Preference will be given to students whose parents have not graduated from American four-year colleges or universities.

Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States.


Our online application will be active starting November 1, 2018. 
Applications must be received by February 1, 2019. They will be reviewed by mid-March. Finalists will be notified, and then interviewed by a Scholarship Plus team during the first week of April. Selection will be announced around the second week of April.
