The New York Life Family Scholars Program
Application status: Closed

The New York Life Foundation established the New York Life Family Scholars Program to assist the children of employees and agents who plan to attend college or vocational/technical school programs. Renewable scholarships are offered for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

The New York Life Family Scholars Program offers two separate scholarship opportunities: one independently administered by Scholarship America® and another independently administered by National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

This application provides information on the New York Life Family Scholars Program independently administered by Scholarship America. For information on the National Merit Scholarship, visit your high school counseling office and obtain a copy of the PSAT/NMSQT student bulletin.  Students may apply for both National Merit and Scholarship America awards, but will only be granted one award.  No student who has been awarded the National Merit Scholarship will be eligible for the New York Life Family Scholars Program from Scholarship America in the future.

This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.

The application program will be available again December. Please return then to view the updated Eligibility and Awards for the upcoming academic year!
