Due to budget cuts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the City is no longer accepting new applications for the Philadelphia City Scholarship.
The Philadelphia City Scholarship was created in 1959 to support students who chose to stay in the Philadelphia area. The scholarship was an investment in the city's future talent and leadership. The City is proud to have supported more than 3,000 students through the scholarship.
The City now funds the Octavius Catto Scholarship which provides funding for first-time, full-time students at the Community College of Philadelphia. Through this initiative, we hope to provide Philadelphia students with a path to quality jobs and financial success.
