Myself Third Scholarship

Myself Third Scholarship

The Myself Third Scholarship has been made possible through a generous gift provided by City College alumnus, Robert Friedman. It was established in 2002 in tribute to those who participated in the rescue effort following the World Trade Center tragedy, with the goal to encourage and reward civic involvement of high school students.

In 2019, two one-time awards of $5,000 were awarded to two CUNY-bound students.


  • Be a high school senior who has completed at least one College Now credit course
  • Be scheduled to graduate in June 
  • Be accepted at a CUNY college as a full-time matriculated undergraduate student planning to attend in Fall
  • Interested students must submit an application by TBA. The application includes an essay, two letters of recommendation (one from a teacher/counselor and one from a volunteer supervisor). Students must also submit an official academic transcript.

John Jay offers a number of scholarships and special programs to support the learning experiences of our academically talented incoming freshmen. A student can apply for these opportunities once they have been officially accepted to the College.
