Scholarship help is available for City government employees who want to pursue a graduate degree, but you must apply soon!
The Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) is accepting applications for the 2010-11 Mayor's Graduate Scholarship Program (MGSP). This is a competitive program - a limited number of scholarships are available.
City employees must apply through their Agency Personnel Office by Monday, November 23, 2009. (Some agencies may have an earlier submission date.)
To compete for a scholarship, you must:
- be a full-time City employee
- have a bachelor’s degree by the start of the fall 2010 semester
- be willing to pursue a graduate degree on your own time
- meet other requirements, as explained at www.nyc.gov/mgsp
Full or partial scholarships will be offered for classes that begin in the fall of 2010. Last year, nearly 400 applications were received, and over 40 scholarships were awarded.
