June was an exciting month for our 24 SGSNY Scholars. Our 2021-22 cohort achieved a remarkable 100% graduation rate across 15 different subjects (compared to national graduation rates among students at 2- and 4-year institutions is 46.2%*). SGSNY representatives attended two graduation ceremonies and were able to cheer on our students at Lehman College and City Tech and present them with graduation gifts. Some of our scholars from Queens College joined us at a reception held in Greenwich, CT and were able to tell supporters the impact of the program and build professional connections with members of our community.
Also this month, the Scholarship Committee selected a new class of scholarship recipients. These scholars are currently enrolled in CUNY institutions in all five New York boroughs and will graduate by spring 2023. We are thrilled to be assisting more than 30 scholars studying 16 different subjects in the next academic year.
