St. George’s Society of New York proudly announces a grant of $50,000 to support 19 deserving CUNY scholars throughout the 2023-24 academic year.
Since its inception in 2008, our Scholarship Program has been dedicated to assisting final-year students of Commonwealth heritage who have demonstrated exceptional academic achievements but face financial obstacles to completing their education. Over the years, our program has provided invaluable financial aid, mentoring, and professional development opportunities to nearly 500 scholars, totaling more than $1.4 million in support. Additionally, each scholar is granted a complimentary 1-year membership to SGSNY.
Our 2023 scholarship recipients hail from diverse academic backgrounds, pursuing degrees in fields such as Nursing, Accounting, Biology, and Computer Engineering at Lehman College, New York City College of Technology, Queens College, and College of Staten Island.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the collective efforts of our generous individual and corporate donors, whose contributions have made these scholarships possible.
St. George’s Society of New York (SGSNY) is thrilled to announce that 28 scholarship recipients graduated with undergraduate degrees from five City University of New York colleges this spring. Representatives from SGSNY attended graduation ceremonies at Lehman College and City Tech in early June to present our scholars with graduation gifts. Scholarship recipients from Queens College, Hunter College, and The College of Staten Island also joined us to celebrate their success with a traditional British tea party at the SGSNY office.
This month, our Scholarship Committee will select a new class of scholarship recipients. These scholars will graduate in spring 2024. We look forward to supporting another outstanding group of students during the next academic year.
Earlier this month, St. George’s Society of New York (SGSNY) hosted an event to introduce our scholars and alumni to mentors and supporters of our Scholarship Program. This annual event, at the home of one of our supporters, provides an opportunity for our scholars to practice their networking skills in a welcoming environment.
Also present were administrators from the 5 CUNY schools we serve, SGSNY Board members, members and program supporters, 1786 Circle members.
All 35 of our class of 2023/24 scholars were offered mentors and those that wanted them, were connected with mentees in the fall. The reception provided the opportunity for our mentors and mentees to meet in person for the first time. A few new mentorships were established as scholars networked with other individuals in a position to help guide them in their prospective field. It was a joyous occasion with real impact and purpose.
The next scheduled Scholarship Program event will be on Friday, 28 April at Lehman College. The Career Development Workshop will provide current scholars and alumni with interview coaching and top tips such as resume writing from experts in the field. Access to this advice and guidance helps improve their confidence and the chances of our scholars securing and succeeding at interview, so they can meet their potential.
