For a three-year period, Bundles Scholars are given access to academic resources, including libraries, course auditing, and campus events. They also receive a Columbia email address, an ID card, and an annual stipend of $500. While it is not a degree program, scholars do have opportunities to share their work and build relationships across the University. Past scholars have worked on a wide variety of projects, including developing nonprofits, writing books, and conducting research in their area of interest. Up to five scholars are selected each year and projects with a community connection are greatly encouraged.
Bundles Scholars are required to have a high school diploma, GED/TASC, or equivalent experience, and must live in Manhattan north of 96th Street.
A virtual information session will be held on March 17. Register now for the opportunity to ask questions of program staff and learn more about the application process and being a Bundles Scholar.
