Info Sessions: FPWA’s Educational Opportunity Scholarships Program

May 16 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join Us for Our Virtual Informational Sessions

For over 30 years, FPWA has been providing scholarships designed to assist low-income New Yorkers in attaining the degree and/or training necessary to ensure their economic security, especially in areas where other scholarship opportunities are lacking. We’re proud to announce our Educational Opportunity Scholarships Program for the 2024-2025 school year.

Students may apply if they are:

  • Entering either their Junior or Senior year of a 4-year College or University (or qualify as a college Junior or Senior based on credits earned); or
  • Entering their final year of an associate degree program; or
  • Participating in a vocational or trade school; or
  • Entering any year of graduate school

To be considered for a scholarship, applicants must reside in one of New York City’s five boroughs but may be attending a school in any city or state. They must be referred by a staff member of an FPWA member agency/organization and be a current or former client of that agency/organization.

We will be hosting two information sessions for advocates from FPWA member organizations to learn more about the program. Please do not share this event with students or anyone outside of your organization. You may use the following links to register for one or both information sessions:

If you have questions, please reach out to the Programs Team at programs@fpwa.org.

FPWA has recently been receiving claims from members of the public emailing and calling our offices that individuals posing as FPWA agents have contacted them claiming that in order for the recipient to claim grant monies from FPWA they must first send the agent personal information, a cell phone number, gift card codes or money.

FPWA does not use social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), text messages or direct phone contact to solicit, review, or make awards. FPWA staff will not call or message you requesting money in order to be eligible for an award.

Further, FPWA does not make grants directly to individuals. FPWA works with its member agency partners and other reputable community-based organizations to direct support to families and individuals in our community.

If you or someone you know has been contacted by someone posing to be an “FPWA Agent” or staff person requesting money to release a grant, please do the following:
