Preference for the annual endowed scholarship will be given to students with a parent who serves or has served with the U.S. Armed Forces or to students from the five boroughs of New York.

The first scholarship was awarded to a member of the Class of 2014…

Last year, the Connollys also directed $250,000 through Goldman Sachs Gives to establish the annual scholarship."
