Long-time Lincoln Square local, New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) has announced a new scholarship opportunity for the families of first-responders and educators. Honoring the commitment and dedication of police officers, firefighters, EMT personnel, and K-12 teachers throughout New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, this new scholarship provides children of these public servants up to 50 percent tuition discount on any of the university's 50+ full-time undergraduate programs, beginning in the 2019 fall semester.
NYIT, whose Manhattan campus is located at Broadway and 61st Street, offers 90 undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs in more than 50 fields of study, including computer science, engineering, medicine, and more. It is a nonprofit, independent, private, and nonsectarian institute of higher education, welcoming more than 9,000 students worldwide.
The Children of Police Officers, Firefighters, EMT, and K-12 Teachers Award is designed to acknowledge NYIT students whose parents or legal guardians are active and fully employed (non-volunteer) in these public service professions. Nearly 98 percent of first-time, full-time degree-seeking students at NYIT receive some form of financial aid. Details and requirements for this and other scholarships are available online.
