This program, devised by The New York Times newsroom began with the idea of offering four-year scholarships to five New York City high school students who had overcome great hardship to achieve excellence. We strongly believe in the lifelong benefits that a good college education can impart, and we are pleased to be able to assist and encourage promising students seeking that opportunity. It is our goal to support the aspirations of students who hope to build on their achievements in college and to make significant contributions to society. The scholarship is for students who have a sense of social purpose and a wide array of personal ambitions — not necessarily journalism. The New York Times College Scholarship Program and has supported over 200 extraordinary graduates of New York City high schools who have attended colleges across the United States and who have studied in programs around the world. Eight scholarships are now offered annually.
