A Scholarship for the Ages

TC has established a new 125th Anniversary Scholarship with funds raised through the College’s benefit gala at the Apollo Theater in November. The new 125th Anniversary Scholarship Program totals $900,000. There will be 90 awards of $10,000 to current students. A first round of scholarships was granted for the 2013-14 academic year.

Continuing master’s and doctoral students are eligible to apply. Scholarship recipients are evaluated on academic merit, satisfactory academic progress and financial need.

Increasing financial support for students is the largest funding goal of TC’s $300 million campaign Where the Future Comes First: The Campaign for Teachers College. The campaign will seek to raise $110 million for scholarships and fellowships so that, free of the burden of debt, TC’s talented students can pursue careers that make a positive difference in the world.

“That evening at the Gala we sent the message loud and clear that TC students deserve our strong support to pursue their dreams,” President Susan Fuhrman wrote in an email to the TC community in January. “We raised $1.4 million for student support at the gala, the majority of which we can distribute through this new scholarship.”
