Scholarship applicants may also be disadvantaged individuals who are unemployed or seeking a career change.

- Funding supports CE programs that prepare individuals for jobs where there is evidence of labor-market demand
Since 2008, the Helena Rubinstein Foundation has supported scholarships for continuing education students at CUNY colleges who are seeking career advancement, and has signaled its ongoing support for these activities through yearly grants to the University. In 2011, the Foundation made a one million dollar gift to CUNY to endow this scholarship fund, making it possible for Continuing Education students at CUNY to access funding for their programs in perpetuity.
