NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- In honor of the City of New Rochelle’s 325th anniversary, The College of New Rochelle today announced the creation of the City of New Rochelle Resident Award. The annual scholarship, up to $9,000, is open to any New Rochelle resident who is accepted and enrolls in either the College’s School of Arts & Sciences or School of Nursing.
“For more than a century, The College of New Rochelle has been an important part of the City of New Rochelle,” said Judith Huntington, President of The College of New Rochelle. “We view this special award as an investment in the future of the City of New Rochelle and in its residents as we continue to offer the high quality, affordable education for which we are known.”
"This generous scholarship does more than honor our community's past, it also helps uphold and expand the educational opportunities that will ensure for New Rochelle a bright future," said New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson.
“The College of New Rochelle is one of the earliest sponsors of the 325th Anniversary, and their generosity continues as a legacy with this substantial scholarship,” said Hon. Marianne L. Sussman, 325th Anniversary Chair. “It celebrates both the historic occasion of the City’s anniversary and the strong positive role The College of New Rochelle has always played in the New Rochelle community.”
