The Paper Scholarship Fund for Social Justice

A CCNY college newspaper advocating for social justice

A fundraising campaign for CCNY: The City College of New York

The Paper Scholarship Fund for Social Justice at
The City College of New York


The Paper (formerly Tech News) has a long and respected legacy. It was created in 1970 by a group of multi-racial students at City College during a period of social upheaval, that included the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam War and its anit-war demonstrations, and fights for student rights. The Paper reported on not just college-related issues, but sought to give voice to the under-served in and around the Harlem community, nationally (including a groundbreaking story on the Attica Prison uprising), and internationally.


Donations will be in support of our ambitious and worthy scholars. Your donation will make a lasting impact on City College students. More than 70% of CCNY students receive financial support. We support those with strong interest in social justice, but who often don't have the means to manage tuition or complete unpaid internships during semester breaks. The Paper Scholarship Fund seeks to help provide an additional financial support option to assist students in their academics, and to build on their professional development and leadership skills.


Won't you please make your gift today? We are grateful for your donation to the Paper Scholarship Fund - a contribution that continues the support of journalism and social justice activism by our students, and ensures the legacy of The Paper at CCNY.
