Student Sponsor Partners Application Open

Applications are now open for Student Sponsor Partners, which addresses the high school dropout crisis in NYC by providing underserved students with four years of non-public, college-preparatory high school education. In addition to access to a high-quality education, SSP students benefit from sponsors who offer financial assistance towards their school tuition and mentors who provide one-on-one support and encouragement. To be eligible to apply, youth must currently be in the 8th grade, have average grades, and come from a family with a limited income. SSP accepts applications on a rolling basis and space is limited, so youth should apply as soon as possible.
