March and Ruti Bell Foundation Scholarships (Undergraduate/Scholarship)

Purpose: To encourage undergraduates in the College of Arts and Science to choose careers in public service. Focus: Public service. Qualif.: Applicants must be junior and senior high school students who have declared their majors in the field of public service; must have a strong sense of their career goals. Criteria: Selection will be based on the following criteria: an excellent academic record; unmet financial need (which would otherwise be covered by a burdensome loan); commitment to entering a public interest profession, as demonstrated in a personal statement, as well as by a track record of community service and (in some cases) a relevant course of study; an interview (for those who survive a preliminary cut on the basis of the three other criteria mentioned here).

Funds Avail.: No specific amount. To Apply: Students may submit an application letter together with other requirements. Deadline: April 1. Contact: Matthew S. Santirocco, Dean, College of Arts and Science, New York University, 100 Washington Square E. New York, NY 10003-6688. 212-998-8100.
