The New York Times College Scholarship Program in USA: $15,000 Cost covered per academic year and summer internship at New York Times

The New York Times College Scholarship Program has sent hundreds of students to universities. Since 1999, the program has awarded four-year scholarships to local high school students who have overcome difficulties while achieving outstanding academic performance. The scholarship is for students with a sense of social mission, interest in journalism, and a wide range of personal ambitions, and is an integral part of our belief that university education provides lifelong benefits.
Our students graduated from dozens of high schools in all of New York's administrative districts and attended colleges and universities across the country.
Current high school seniors who attend a public, parochial or private school in New York City and who have demonstrated:
Preference will be given to students whose parents have not graduated from accredited American four-year colleges or universities. Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States.
In 2021, we will select 12 high school graduates to receive a four-year scholarship of up to $15,000 per academic year to enter any country-recognized four-year university where they are admitted to full-time study. Students will also receive a laptop. Students receive funding from their public donation scholarships and endowments, mainly funded by the Stahl Foundation.
The scholarship can be used to pay for tuition, board and lodging, miscellaneous fees and other educational expenses. As long as students maintain good academic performance and progress to a degree normally, each scholarship will be renewed for up to four years of study each year.
