Event Host

For more than 150 years, St. Francis has provided an affordable, quality education to students of all racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. 97 percent of SFC students receive some form of financial aid, including federal and state grants, federal loans and newly increased amounts of institutional scholarships, making St. Francis one of the most affordable private colleges in New York City. Merit-based scholarships that cover near-full tuition for graduating high school students with a 1200 on their SAT's are the cornerstone of the College's financial aid program.

The Franciscan Tradition of the College ensures a welcoming environment that supports students and helps develop the whole person. St. Francis College challenges all students to expand their learning experience beyond the classroom and become an integral part of the community. They belong to more than 40 clubs, fraternities, sororities, and honor societies. Social responsibility and mutual respect are among the values that enable St. Francis students to achieve their dreams.

*Also, the founder and owner went to SFC :-) You can find out more information here: https://www.sfc.edu/about/contactsfc

Investor Sponsors

Are your students ready to launch a professional business or technology career?

Year Up is an intensive, one-year program that combines hands-on skill development and internships at some of America’s top companies. As students work towards earning college credits and/or an associate’s degree, we support them in launching a career. Upon completing the Year Up program, 90 % of alumni are employed and/or attending college full-time within four months of graduation and earn an average annual income of $38,000.

When Does the Program Begin?

New cohorts begin every Fall and Spring. Applications are considered on a rolling basis until the class is filled. We encourage students to apply early as space is limited.

What is the Internship?

All Year Up students who complete the first six months of the program will earn an internship and spend 35 hours/week for 6 months at a corporate internship while earning college credits and/or working on their associate’s degree. Year Up internship partners include JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, American Express, and many more!
