College Point students heading to college next year have the opportunity to apply for some financial assistance from a nonprofit organization until April 17.

The Karl A. Spahlinger Jr. Scholarship Fund, distributed by the One Point of Light Foundation, was established in 2015 to provide financial assistance to students from College Point. The one-year scholarships will provide up to $2,500 to help cover the cost of tuition, fees and room and board for up to four students.

Scholarships will be awarded based on academic merit and financial need and may be renewed on an annual basis. Applicants must be accepted as a full time student at a college, university or trade school in New York City and have a permanent residence in College Point. Preference will be given to applicants studying engineering or an animal-related field.

Applicants must complete and submit a scholarship application by April 17 and will be notified, if awarded a scholarship, by June 30.

The scholarship funds are sent directly to the recipient’s school.

A copy of the application and a full list of applicant criteria can be found here. For more information, contact Lynne Serpe at 646-202-0825 or email questions to lynneserpe.nyc [at] gmail.com with “Scholarship” in the subject header.

The One Point of Light Foundation was established in 1999 by Karl A. Spahlinger, Jr., a long-time resident of College Point. A graduate of NYU, Spahlinger was an engineer for AT&T and Verizon and an active philanthropist.
