NYCHA-CUNY Resident Scholarship Program &
Regina A. Figueroa Memorial Scholarship Program


The Resident Scholarship Program is one of the many ways the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) invests in the education of its residents. The NYCHA-CUNY Resident Scholarship Program provides $1,000 scholarships for qualifying public housing residents who are enrolled in colleges of the City University of New York (CUNY), in a variety of majors with at least a 3.0 grade point average. And the Regina A. Figueroa Memorial Scholarship annually awards $1,000 scholarships to qualifying NYCHA residents with disabilities who are enrolled in CUNY senior and community colleges.
