Each year, the Philadelphia City Scholarship Program awards around 50 scholarships to local high school seniors. Recipients get $1,000 each academic year for four consecutive years of enrollment.
If you apply, the review committee will consider your:
- High school grades.
- Extracurricular activities.
- Leadership potential.
- Writing ability.
- Financial need, as described in your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) report.
All City Scholarship recipients must attend bachelor’s degree programs at local colleges or universities.
