High school seniors may apply for Shanker scholarships

New York Teacher

Do you work in a high school? Make sure the seniors in your school apply for the UFT’s $5,000 Albert Shanker college scholarships. This year the application deadline is Dec. 31, earlier than in previous years. If you do not work in a high school, please reach out to family, friends and community members who may know students who qualify for this scholarship.

Each year, the UFT awards $1 million in scholarships to academically excellent and financially eligible New York City public high school seniors through the Albert Shanker College Scholarship Fund. To receive a $5,000 award from the fund, selected students must be accepted in a full-time, degree-granting program at an accredited college or university.
