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. Scholars 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 9, 2022.

Applications are due April 29, 2022.
