Fall 2015 - Guttman Scholars

June 2015: Congratulations to the Fall 2015 Guttman Scholars

Seventy-five CUNY community college graduates have received Guttman Transfer Scholarships to support their studies at one of five CUNY senior colleges this fall. This scholarship program, offered through a generous endowment from the Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation, awards scholarships in the spring and fall of each year. The competitive scholarships are given to high-achieving students who are finishing their associates’ degrees at one of CUNY’s seven community colleges and who will transfer to one of CUNY’s senior colleges. Guttman Scholars receive up to $4,000 over two years to help cover their tuition or academic expenses. The Fall 2015 Guttman Scholars include a Navy veteran planning a career as a nurse practitioner, and a student whose experiences in chemistry labs and symposiums at Queensborough Community College inspired her to pursue a PhD in biochemistry.

“Guttman Scholars are community college students who have truly excelled at their community colleges, and will now move on to attain their bachelor’s degree,” said Julia Wrigley, Interim Executive Vice Chancellor and University Provost. “Transitioning into a senior college is a pivotal moment for students, and the Guttman Transfer Scholarship program celebrates the accomplishment of CUNY’s outstanding community college graduates, while also helping to finance the next phase of their education.”

To be eligible for a Guttman Transfer Scholarship, a student must be on track to earn an associate degree from one of CUNY’s community colleges. Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above, and priority is given to those who are eligible for financial aid. Finally, eligible students must apply for transfer to one of five CUNY senior colleges—Brooklyn College, City College, Hunter College, Lehman College, or Queens College—and enroll full time in the following semester.

The Guttman Transfer Scholarship program was established in 2013 and 175 students across three cohorts have received this honor. The number of scholarship winners will grow exponentially over the coming years thanks to the funding that will be available through the endowment. Applications for the next round of Guttman Scholarships will be open in August, check back at www.cuny.edu/guttmanscholarship throughout the summer for updates.
