Guttman Transfer Scholarships offer benefits for outstanding CUNY community college students who transfer to an eligible CUNY senior college. Guttman Scholars receive $4,000 paid over two years. CUNY is able to offer these scholarships through an endowment provided by the Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation.

Congratulations to those students who have been selected to receive a Guttman Transfer Scholarship for the Fall 2014 semester!

Seventy-five outstanding students have been selected as the first cohort of Guttman Scholars. These students have performed at a high level within CUNY's community colleges, and will be enrolled in Fall 2014 at Brooklyn College, City College, Hunter College, Lehman College, or Queens College.

Award Ceremony: September 30, 2014

We look forward to honoring the Fall 2014 Guttman Scholars at a reception that will take place at the CUNY Graduate Center on September 30 at 5:00 p.m. Representatives from the Guttman Foundation, as well as the Guttman Scholars’ faculty recommenders, have been invited to attend.
