Three students from New Hyde Park Memorial High School have received scholarships to attend Berkeley College this fall.
Jonathan Chambers, Alexa Miranda and Thulasi Pius of Elmont, all New Hyde Park Memorial High School students, received the scholarships.
“It is an honor to recognize the academic accomplishments of these high school seniors by awarding them scholarships to attend Berkeley College,” Dr. Dario A. Cortes, Berkeley College President, said in a statement. “As a college that values diversity, fosters academic growth and recognizes the potential of each student, Berkeley College looks forward to welcoming these scholarship recipients to our campuses in the coming year.”
Robert Walter of New Hyde Park in Queens County, a senior at Queens High School of Teaching, Liberal Arts and the Sciences, also was named a scholarship recipient.
Berkeley College scholarships are awarded annually to high school seniors who demonstrate a high level of achievement in high school. Scholarships are renewable based on the recipient’s cumulative grade point average at the end of each academic year and continued enrollment as a full-time student.
Berkeley College enrolls more than 7,700 students — including over 800 international students — in its Baccalaureate and Associate degree programs. The College has three New York locations — Midtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, and White Plains.
