NCHA Foundation Scholarships
The Foundation's top priorities are the education of our youth. NCHA Charities has provided over $50,000 in scholarship funds to NYCHA members. The purpose of the NCHA Foundation scholarships is to encourage leadership, work ethic, community service, and above all - attendance and completion of higher or extended education.
The scholarship varies depending on the applicant's financial need. Scholarship awards are payable in the fall and spring semesters in those increments per semester. Scholarships will be paid to the college or university in the student's name. The NCHA Charities Foundation supports these scholarships through individual donations, fundraisers, and an anonymous donor.
Must be an active NYCHA member in good standing. All applications are due May 15th and must be submitted via the new online portal. If you want to prepare, there will still be letters of reference required from your teacher or counselor and an NCHA representative as has been required previously (references will be able to submit their letters online). You will also need a digital copy of your most recent transcript (including your GPA). We anticipate a larger and more competitive pool of applicants this year and look forward to seeing your high GPA and timely deliverables! If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com.
