NCHA Foundation Scholarships
The Foundation's top priorities are the education of our youth. NCHA Charities has provided over $500,000 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. The NCHA Foundation is in the process of moving our scholarship application process to a completely online platform. Our hope is to launch this spring, therefore, applications will not be due until May 15th. We will keep you posted on the progress and announce when it goes live. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to Julia Buswold at firstname.lastname@example.org.
