The Jacqueline Schiller Fund Scholarship was established in The New York Community Trust to provide scholarships to CUNY students in the fields of literature and/or history who are among the best and brightest and who demonstrate financial need. The fields of literature and history are very broad and include many courses and many different programs; applications will be reviewed with this in mind.

For this coming academic year, there will be ten scholarships awarded in the amount of $1,000 each. To be competitive candidates, students should have a strong academic record with campus and/or community service activities.

Completed applications are due no later than Tuesday, Aug. 15, 2017. All awardees will be notified by Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017.
