For CUNY Baccalaureate students who are interested in or have already demonstrated a commitment to social change in some form.

Applicants may be part- or full-time students. This is a one-time award.

This scholarship is for CUNY Baccalaureate students preparing for careers as teachers. Students planning traditional classroom teaching careers will be considered first, but students planning nontraditional careers in teaching or education are also encouraged to apply. Students who re-apply will have to demonstrate accomplishments that exceed those detailed in their original applications.
