Myself Third: Spirit of New York Scholarships

On January 17, 2002, Robert Friedman, a partner in Sage Capital Management, announced the creation of $2,500 scholarships for College Now students bound for the City University of New York.  They will be known as the “Myself Third: Spirit of New York Scholarships,” a reference to a lesson he learned in the sixth grade: to put oneself third after responsibilities to God and to country.  The scholarships, a tribute to the September 11 rescue workers, will be available to students who participate in College Now, a CUNY program that helps prepare high school students for college.  Applicants will be required to submit an essay describing a personal experience that demonstrates appreciation of civic responsibility.
For further information, students should contact the college advisor of their high school or Ms. Fischer at the College Now office in Kingsborough Community College.
