Hunter College Roosevelt Scholars Program

The Hunter College Roosevelt Scholarship provides a unique opportunity for academically talented students with a significant interest in public and civic affairs to take advantage of Hunter’s exceptional public policy, urban affairs, international human rights, and pre-law faculty and resources. Roosevelt Scholars explore and engage in public and civic issues through specially designed, shared courses, and unique events with government officials, policy makers, community activists, academics, and social sector organization leaders. Roosevelt Scholars receive a significant tuition award for four years, and preferred access to Hunter’s residential housing and housing aid. Roosevelt Scholars have a dedicated faculty mentor, the Director, Elise Jaffe, and academic advisors to help them succeed at Hunter, including guidance on internships and other opportunities.
