Hello Students, Guidance Counselors, Donors, and any Friends of the NYCORP College Scholarship Kids.  

Please find all the information you need to APPLY NOW for the 2022 NYCORP College Scholarship campaign. 

This is our sixth year and we are proud of all the Students who have won scholarships and moved on to college.   We are so delighted to receive applications for the 2022 NYCORP College Scholarship.

Meantime, our NYCORP College Scholarship Committee wishes you good luck in all you do during your High School Senior Year.

WEBSITE UPDATES:  Our NYCORP College Scholarship Team is excited about our 9th Annual 2022 Scholarship Campaign.  Please apply online at the NYCORP site using the Scholarship link above.  

COMMUNICATIONS NOTE:  Since the NYCORP Scholarship Fund is a Volunteer Program; please expect some delay in responding to your email.  We will get back to you as soon as possible.

TWO NYCORP SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION DEADLINES:  Applications must be received by:

 April 1, 2022, for the Early Bird Applications, and April 22, 2022, for the Regular Applications.    

We welcome all seniors, who qualify, to apply.  

Students:  After you have uploaded your application, essay, and consent form on the scholarship site, please send us a quick email (with your name, email, and phone number) to NYCORPcollegescholarshipfund@gmail.com 

The email should say:  

“Hi, My name is XXX.  I have just uploaded my application to the NYCORP Scholarship Page”.  

Early Bird Scholarship Application Deadline is anytime before April 1, 2022. Qualifying students, whose full applications are received by March 18 will be considered for an Early Bird Scholarship. There could be fewer students applying by the earlier deadline, and therefore increasing the chance of winning a scholarship for those who apply earlier. Also, qualifying students, who do not win an Early Bird Scholarship, will also be considered a second time for a regular deadline (April 22) scholarship. Being considered two times would increase your chances of being awarded a scholarship.

Regular Scholarship Application Deadline: April 22, 2022,

Please apply before the deadline otherwise the scholarship dollars will need to be carried over to next year. It would be a shame if the money allotted in scholarships did not get awarded to help deserving students with their college expenses.  

 

GUIDANCE COUNSELORS:  Guidance Counselors can email High School Seniors Transcripts to us for the 2022 Scholarship to [email protected]  Please see Guidance Counselor Letter below. STUDENTS QUESTIONS:  Please use our NYCORP Scholarship Email ([email protected]) for any questions you may have.  PLEASE DO NOT send your Essay, Consent Form, or Application to this email box.  Those documents are UPLOADED online.

GUIDANCE COUNSELOR LETTER:                             

Greetings NY City (Manhattan) High School Guidance Counselors and College Coaches,

RE:  NYCORP 2022 College Scholarship Fund

To: New York City High School Guidance Counselors On behalf of the New York Council of Relocation Professionals Corp (NYCORP), we would like to make you aware of a scholarship opportunity for local New York City High School seniors.

Please see the scholarship link for information about this program:

http://NYCORP.org/scholarship/

All application documents are located on the NYCORP Scholarship Application Link page.

http://NYCORP.org/scholarship-form/

NYCORP is a non-profit organization that brings together NY and regional corporations and relocation service providers for the primary purpose of providing educational information and current industry updates to its members about the relocation industry. NYCORP recognizes that successful relocations are those that help build talent for corporations, government entities, and non-profit organizations. In addition, these mission-critical transfers enhance the careers of their employees, and also provide growth and added value to the families involved in moving. Understanding that High School students, when relocated, are faced with giving up the comforts of their homes, established friendships, involvement with school and community activities. This is compounded by their entry into a new world where they must create and develop new lifestyles, as well as handle numerous unexpected challenges. While often difficult, we have found that this time can also be inspirational and provide life learning lessons. Whatever the impact, we know that each relocating student has a very special story, unique to their own experiences and stories that we feel need to be told! Therefore, NYCORP will award scholarships to college-bound high school seniors who have relocated to NYC during their High School years. Our goal is to award as many scholarships as possible.  Since 2014, we have awarded  more than$15,000 in college Scholarships.   In 2022 we hope to raise enough funds to provide larger scholarships to the three winners. Students should have moved between 9th (after 8th-grade graduation) and 12th grade. The award will be sent to the college that the student will be attending to assist with tuition, etc. In addition, if timetables allow, NYCORP may apply to the national organization Worldwide ERC Foundation for Workforce Mobility for additional scholarship funds. If successful, these funds may be applied in varying amounts to one of the NYCORP scholarship recipients.                             

 

NYCORP will select scholarship winners based on the strength of their total package. The student will be evaluated on academic performance, extra-curricular activities, and on their response to an essay addressing the way they handled the challenges associated with relocating to a new area and a new High School. Regardless of whether the student receives the reward, ALL students will be considered winners and ALL stories will become an important addition to the NYCORP story collection, entitled “Moving to the Big Apple…. Challenges, Lessons Learned, and Personal Paths of Excellence” We look for your assistance please with the following items: 1) Eligible High School seniors can apply based on the criteria that they have: a. Relocated more than 50 miles and changed schools due to a relocation, and b. Have maintained a current cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or above on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent achievement on a different scale). 2) Academic transcripts, should accompany the senior’s application. 3) Students should double-check to make sure their online submissions are complete and accurate with the required Application, Essay, Transcripts, Consent Form, and Online Questionnaire. 4) Making eligible students aware of this scholarship opportunity and encouraging their participation. Please post the scholarship application on your website or in your newsletter to seniors.

Thanks and Best Regards, NYCORP College Scholarship Fund Committee [email protected] ___________________________________________________________The goal of the NYCORP Scholarship Committee is to award multiple college scholarships for deserving NY high school seniors that meet certain criteria and requirements.

NYCORP recognizes that successful relocations are those that not only help build talent for corporations, and/or enhance the careers of their employees, but also those that provide growth and added value to the families involved in moving. High School students, when relocated, are faced with giving up the comforts of their homes, established friendships, involvement with school and community activities and then forced into a new world where they must create and develop new lifestyles as well as handle numerous unexpected challenges. While often difficult, we have found that this time can also be inspirational and provide life-learning lessons. Whatever the impact, we know that each relocating student has a very special story, unique to his or her own experiences. These stories need to be told! Therefore, NYCORP will award a specific amount annually as determined by fundraising capabilities as a scholarship to college-bound high school seniors who have relocated into one of our member’s service areas or have been relocated anywhere in the world by one of our qualified corporate members. We hope that you will join us in supporting the fund. ____________________________________
