The New Visions for Public Schools Scholarship Programs

New Visions for Public Schools currently has two scholarship programs to support current seniors from its 80 network schools to achieve their postsecondary goals: 1) New Visions for Public Schools Scholarship Fund & 2) the Jay L. Kriegel Memorial Scholarship. 


New Visions for Public Schools Scholarship Fund provides up to ten scholarships to high achieving seniors who are engaged in their local and school communities, are demonstrated leaders, and are in need of financial support.  Since the founding of the program in 2009, New Visions has provided support to over 100 students, the vast majority of whom are first generation college students. Our scholars currently attend or have graduated from highly selective institutions such as Brown University, Cornell University, CUNY City College, and SUNY Stony Brook.  Scholarship recipients are awarded up to $5,000 per year - up to $20,000 over four years - to support the costs associated with attending college.

In honor of long time New Visions board member Jay L. Kriegel, the Kriegel Scholarship awards five civically active graduating seniors a $5,000 scholarship. Principals from New Visions network of schools nominate one senior who has proven civic engagement in their school, local and/or global communities. The Kriegel scholarship has no restrictions on GPA and financial need. School nominations will be announced in the Spring 2023. Only nominated students will be able to access the application.

"Thank you to New Visions for Public Schools, especially those who are/were part of the Scholarship Team, for all the support and guidance throughout these years."
