Dear Members & Friends of St. George’s Society,
As the Chairman of the Society’s Scholarship Committee, I am pleased to share some wonderful news and updates about our Scholarship Program.
Our 2016 scholarship recipients will graduate from Lehman College today. These 25 students have obtained degrees spanning a variety of fields including Biology, Accounting, Nursing and Psychology. We are extremely proud of their accomplishments and wish them many congratulations as they embark on their next journey.
Since the program was launched in 2008, we have awarded more than 250 scholarships, totaling over $720,000 and in 2013, St. George’s Society became Lehman College’s largest benefactor.
As we approach the program’s 10-year anniversary in 2018, we are excited to also welcome students from Hunter College, part of the City University of New York. This expansion of the program provides access to education for more students who lack the financial means to complete their studies.
The Scholarship Committee will select the recipients for the 2017-18 academic year this July. Thank you for your continued support for the Society’s efforts to enrich the lives of individuals and families in the British and Commonwealth community in New York.
Dr. Paul Beresford-Hill CBE
Chairman, Scholarship Committee
