Study/Travel Opportunities for CUNY Students (STOCS)
Undergraduate students participating in short-term (summer and winter intersession) CUNY study abroad programs may apply for scholarships for Study/Travel Opportunities for CUNY Students (STOCS). Applications are reviewed by a committee of CUNY faculty and administrators. Grants range from $1,000 to $1,650. Judges base their selections on two main criteria: the benefit of the program to the student's studies and career plan and financial need. Students with a family income of more than $75,000 are not eligible.
Funded by the a grant from The New York Community Trust DeWitt Wallace/Youth Travel Enrichment Fund, the STOCS program aims to increase the number of CUNY students studying overseas by providing scholarships to deserving students. It has contributed toward the strengthening of existing short-term CUNY study abroad programs and the development of new ones.
More than 1,500 CUNY students have received STOCS grants since 1994.
