New Era Scholarships
"I am a student of the Sophie Davis Program and a CCNY New Era Scholarship recipient. Without the generous assistance of City College alumni, I would not be able to fulfill my lifelong goal of providing compassionate care to those in underserved communities, just like the one I was born into.
As a New Era Scholar I believe that I have become an ambassador of sorts by encouraging students to truly believe that the sky is their limit. My scholarship has allowed me to live on campus, where I can completely focus on being the best student that I can be around the clock. It has eased the financial load from my mother's shoulders, boosted my confidence in my abilities as a student, and bolstered my commitment to becoming a physician."
