City Year Undergraduate Scholarships

Give a Year ProgramWheelock College is proud to be part of the City Year Alumni University Partnerships program, through which we offer scholarships to selected Wheelock undergraduate 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.


Up to 10 University Partners scholarships will be awarded annually to students enrolled full-time in one of Wheelock's undergraduate programs. Applicants must be current City Year corps members; alumni who have successfully completed at least one year of service to City Year; or City Year staff members employed for at least two years. Only students applying for fall admission will be considered for the scholarship. Students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA, be in good academic and social standing, and be enrolled full-time.

Scholarship Benefits

Each scholarship provides a minimum of $15,000 annually ($7,500 each semester) and will be renewable each year the student remains enrolled full-time and in good academic standing. Applicants will be considered for additional financial aid depending on the strength of their application. All applicants will have their application fees waived.

Please note that if you are awarded The Wheelock College/City Year Scholarship, you will not be eligible for any other Wheelock College grant or scholarship.
