City Year Graduate Scholarships

City Year JacketWheelock College is proud to partner with City Year to offer "give a year" scholarships to selected Wheelock graduate students who spend a year serving as City Year corps members. City Year unites young people of all backgrounds to serve as tutors, mentors, and role models for children across the U.S. This partnership will help bring idealistic and committed students with a high level of maturity, insight, and experience to Wheelock.

Students must remain in good academic and social standing while attending Wheelock.
