New York City Housing Authority Scholarship

The City University of New York (CUNY) is proud to partner with the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) to support the efforts of public housing residents in their pursuit of higher education at CUNY colleges.

Since 2005, the NYCHA-CUNY Resident Scholarship Program has aided several CUNY students in achieving their professional goals. Annually NYCHA awards $1,000 scholarships to eligible residents who are enrolled full-time at CUNY colleges through two scholarship programs: The NYCHA-CUNY Resident Scholarship Program and the Regina A. Figueroa Memorial Scholarship for NYCHA residents with disabilities.

If you are a NYCHA resident attending a CUNY Community or Senior College, you may be eligible to receive a $1,000 NYCHA – CUNY Resident Scholarship or the Regina A. Figueroa Memorial Scholarship.

We are pleased to announce the open application period for both scholarships. Approximately 10 scholarships will be awarded to eligible NYCHA residents. Completed applications must be received by NYCHA no later than June 14, 2013.
