2020 CSA Leadership Scholarships
The application for our 5 Boroughs Leadership Scholarships is now available and open to college-bound students graduating from NYC Public Schools. (Please note, this is separate and apart from the $10,000 Scholarship for the child of a member which will open on Thursday, Jan 30).
This scholarship is open to all students graduating from a NYC Public School who will be attending college in the fall, including community college. The scholarship is intended for a student who shows leadership in school and or outside of school or might have overcome hardships to reach graduation. The award is not based on the GPA or SAT scores of the student. In fact, the student is not asked to list them or provide a transcript. CSA Scholarship guidelines ask you to choose a student who you believe shows potential and academic promise.
a. Each school may submit up to three (3) student applications. One per borough will be awarded and presented at a dinner at the LaGuardia Marriott, the first week of June. Each award is $3000.
b. There are three parts to the application that must be fully filled out: Application, Personal Statements and Supervisor Verification. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
c. The Application (1 page) and Personal Statements are to be given to the student(s) and must be filled out completely.

The completed Application and Personal Statements are returned to the Assistant Principal or Principal no later than Friday, February 28, 2020, who then completes the Verification (1 page) form and sends the Application, Personal Statement (responses to the three questions) and Supervisor’s Verification form to CSA.
