More than 25 percent of Hunter students attend Hunter College on a part-time basis. Many part-time students share a common challenge — maintaining a successful balance between college studies, family obligations and work schedule. Most part-time Hunter students are unable to attend college full-time due to these commitments or limited financial resources. Despite these challenges, many part-time Hunter students maintain strong academic records while managing a myriad of personal responsibilities.
In order to address the needs of part-time students, and acknowledge both their accomplishments and challenges, Hunter has established the Beatrice and Raymond Liebesman Completion Fund, also known as the Part-Time Student Completion Award. The primary goal of this award is to provide financial, academic, and personal support services to part-time students who are experiencing the situation described above, who also meet the criteria below.
