Like the Stern School of Business at New York University.Alumni of its MBA and undergraduate programs are now easing that transition for some of the best students switching from community college to major university with some scholarships, per a new press release. The school established three new scholarship funds for two-year community college students who’ve been admitted into NYU Stern. These scholarships are engineered to go to students in need, helping low-income individuals get access to the education they deserve.Howard Meyers ScholarsThe Howard Meyers Family Foundation donated $3 million for the effort.
