The Jacqueline Schiller Fund was established to provide scholarships to CUNY students in the fields of literature and/or history who are among the best and brightest, and demonstrate financial need. The fields of literature and history are very broad and include many courses and many different programs. Students do not have to be majoring or minoring in these subjects, but must be able to demonstrate their commitment to the study of literature or history. For the 2019-2020 academic year, there will be ten scholarships offered in the amount of $1,000 each.

The deadline to submit applications is Aug. 2, 2019. Awardees will be notified by email and letter by Sept. 9, 2019. Students who are interested in applying and looking for assistance with their applications may contact Michele Callahan, Fellowship and Scholarship Advisor, at or 718.982.2332.
