New York Times College Scholarship Program

The New York Times College Scholarship Program is a prestigious academic scholarship competition for New York City high school seniors. Past winners have demonstrated academic achievement, a drive for success — especially in the face of financial and other obstacles — and community service. Furthermore, candidates whose parents did not attend college are favored. Each year, since 1999, 20 scholars are announced. However, in 2009, due to financial hardships, the New York Times selected only 12 winners. In 2010, that number was halved to 6 finalists. There are a total of 218 Scholars to date. To enter the competition, a student must

* be enrolled full time at a New York City public, private or parochial high school, progressing normally toward completion of high school and planning to enroll full time in college in the fall following the completion of high school
* be an American citizen or have a valid green card and alien registration number
