The Kaye Scholars Program


The H. Austin and Florence R.S. Kaye Foundation has joined with City College to provide funds for a program to attract and support promising students who are pursuing a major in the Humanities & Arts.


Kaye Scholars will be chosen by a panel of City College faculty on the basis of:

  • Academic merit
  • creative promise
  • financial need


Recipients of Kaye Scholarships must, in order to maintain the award:

  • Be full time students (taking a minimum of 12 credits) at City College
  • Maintain a 3.0 GPA
  • Pursue a major in the Division of Humanities & Arts (American Studies, Art, Asian Studies, Comparative Literature, English, Foreign Languages and Literatures, History, Jewish Studies, Media and Communication Arts, Music, Philosophy, or Theater). No other major is acceptable.
  • Be a first degree student.


  • Stipends equal to in-state tuition per semester (currently approximately $6,438 per year)

City College used to be free until 1975. Unfortunately, I enrolled here in 2006 and yet, even though we need such crucial programs as the Kaye Scholarship to support aspiring working-class college students, the exciting history of student radicalism at this school can hopefully one day win back free tuition.
