The Association’s college scholar program was founded in 1971 to assist academically qualified sons and daughters of career civil service employees in obtaining a college education. Selection is based on scholastic achievement, leadership and commitment, and a record of school and community service.
College scholars are determined by the awards committee, based on written applications from approximately 150 high school seniors and college students. Eligibility requires that a parent be a permanent civil service employee and that the gross family income is less that $93,000.
College scholarships range from $6,000 to $1,000. The top award is named a Charles E. Inniss College Scholar in memory of an officer of National Grid (formerly KeySpan Energy) who was dedicated to education and community service in New York City.
Scholarship sponsors join the Mayor and commissioners in presenting their awards at City Hall and are honored as part of the Association’s Governor’s Council. To join The Hundred Year Association in honoring these exceptional students or to learn how to apply for a scholarship, please contact the Association or call 212-922-0791.
