NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Congressman Eliot L. Engel, a senior member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Health Subcommittee, announced $649,980 in federal funding for the College of New Rochelle (CNR).
The funding, granted by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), will allow CNR to provide scholarships for economically disadvantaged students studying nursing or other health specialties.
“No one should be denied an education in their field of choice because of their background,” Engel said. “This funding will ensure that students from low-income homes can pursue careers in health care and, in turn, care for the people of our community.”
The College of New Rochelle will choose eligible scholarship recipients. A full description of HRSA’s Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students program can be found here.
