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 the civic involvement of high school students.

In 2021, three one-time awards of $5,000 will be awarded to two CUNY-bound students.
