The College of New Rochelle has set up a scholarship exclusively for residents of its host city.
To apply for the award of up to $9,000, a student must live in New Rochelle, be recommended by a guidance counselor or principal and be accepted in the college’s School of Arts & Sciences or School of Nursing.
College President Judith Huntington and New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson announced the creation of the City of New Rochelle Resident Award this morning in the parlor of Leland Castle on the college campus.
It was dedicated in honor of the city’s 325th anniversary, which is being celebrated with events all year.
“Now more than ever, students need more financial aid,” Huntingon said after the announcement. “They don’t near more loans, more money to pay back. They need money to go to college.”
Recipients will be able to renew the scholarship each year, Huntington said.
