The Hostos Community College Foundation is pleased to announce that The John Anthony Chardavoyne Endowed Scholarship will award its first student recipients in the Spring 2022 semester. This $75,000 scholarship endowment honors the memory of a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend to many. Mr. Chardavoyne was an adventurous spirit and avid traveler, and this scholarship is a lasting tribute to his gift of spreading joy and happiness to everyone he met.
Awards will be made without consideration for financial or legal status. Eligibility is reserved for full-time students who are enrolled in the Liberal Arts and Sciences Degree Program and working towards completion of a Historical Studies Option sequence. Students must have a demonstrated interest in community service and at least a 3.0 GPA. Two awards of $500 each will be awarded annually to graduating students who intend to matriculate into a four-year degree program.
Applications will be received through the College’s scholarship management system. Students will be required to answer three essay questions detailing why they chose historical studies; what they have gained from these classes in the sequence and will apply to their future endeavors; and why they engage in community service activities and what they gain from these experiences.
The Foundation extends its profound gratitude to the family of Senior Vice President of Administration and Finance Esther Rodriguez-Chardavoyne and to the many friends who have helped to make this impactful scholarship opportunity possible.
