CIS-NYC’s Angel Fund Program provides scholarships and support to low-income immigrant students who are pursuing higher education. Scholarships can be used to cover any proven educational related expenses, such as tuition, fees, school supplies and books. Masters level social work interns provide each student with emotional support, educational guidance, and advocacy to help students attain their educational goals, navigate the US school system, and improve their quality of life in the United States. Each scholarship recipient is required to complete 21 hours of volunteer work at CIS-NYC, providing them with useful work experience.
This program is made possible by generous gifts from:
Dorothy M. Benz and Timothy J. Mahoney
The Mother Cabrini League (Chicago)
