Help a deserving student in NYC earn a degree


New York is a gateway city for immigrants to America. St. George's Society's Scholarship Program assists talented students of recent British and Commonwealth heritage at Lehman and Hunter Colleges, part of The City University of New York, to earn their degrees, start careers and achieve their dreams.

Education is the key to advancement and success yet fewer than 66% of Americans who enroll in college end up graduating. Many are defeated by the high cost of tuition. Higher education is particularly important for recent immigrants to thrive in their new homeland. Our program is aimed at New York City area students of recent British/Commonwealth origin who have the ability to succeed but lack the money to complete their studies and become contributing members of the community.


St. George's Society's Scholarship Program aims to help motivated first and second-generation immigrants in New York to become integrated in their new homeland, acquire knowledge and skills and ultimately raise the city's education level and overall quality of life.

Long-Term Impact

Since 2008 St. George's Society has awarded 250 scholarships, affording the recipients the opportunity to graduate and pursue meaningful occupations. Many of our scholars now enjoy careers in nursing, health services, social work, education and other professions that give back to the community. One of our most recent scholarship recipients says "Your generosity has inspired me to help others. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me."
