Exceptional undergraduates from underserved communities prepare to enter the workforce of the future, equipped for in-demand jobs.
The possibility of a college degree—and a debt-free future—is now closer to reality for 330 students at the City University of New York (CUNY). Through a $1 million, multi-year grant from the BNY Mellon Foundation, high-achieving, low-income CUNY students working toward STEM or finance-related degrees now have critical financial support to fuel their dreams. It’s part of our strategy to help build the workforce of the future.
Known as BNY Mellon Transfer Scholars, these scholarship recipients have earned an associate degree through the highly regarded Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP) within the CUNY community college system. The BNY Mellon Transfer Scholarship rewards ASAP graduates for their past academic performance and inspires them to earn a baccalaureate degree by providing funds for tuition, books and fees each academic year.
