City College of New York’s Grove School of Engineering, the only public school of engineering in the city, is the recipient of a $1 million anonymous gift. The largesse creates a permanent endowed fund to provide scholarships and other support for Grove School students.
Named “The Endowed Scholarship Fund to Support the Pursuit of Engineering Careers,” it will be administered by The 21st Century Foundation.
“The 21st Century Foundation and the City College of New York are honored to receive this gift, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of one of our engineering alumni,” said Dee Dee Mozeleski, interim executive director of the Foundation. “It is designed with the unique needs of Grove School of Engineering students in mind.”
Gilda A. Barabino, dean and Berg Professor at the Grove School, one of the most diverse engineering schools in the nation, said: “The Fund will have a lasting impact on our students and ensure that CCNY continues to provide access to excellence for remarkable students from a diversity of backgrounds and to produce the engineering innovators of tomorrow.”
The fund is expected to provide up to 10 students in need with approximately $4,000, or 50 % of their annual tuition, per academic year. In addition, they will receive a $750 book allowance for hardcopy or digital books; software needed for advanced courses, or other bookstore-related purchases as suggested by course requirements.
