New York Pass Education Scholarship

At Go City we believe everyone deserves the chance to enjoy the best experiences a city has to offer but not all experiences are easily affordable on a student budget. Living costs are rising and so are the costs of books, tuition fees and expenses. For this reason, Go City wants to help students who are enrolled at a college or university in the U.S. by offering the chance to visit major attractions in New York City for free, while providing a one-time $4,000 academic scholarship award. 

The scholarship 

The winner of the Go City education scholarship will receive: 

  1. 6 1-day passes for you or your family to experience 100+ New York City attractions  

  1. A one-time award of $4,000 towards study, books, expenses etc. 

The scholarship may be used for tuition, room and board, books, or travel. Funds will be transferred directly to the winner. 

The 6 1-day pass allowance can be used by multiple people. For example, you can have six day passes for one person, or three day passes each for two people. Any day passes can be used on selected days and do not have to be used on consecutive days. 

Eligibility requirements 

You must be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or currently studying in the U.S. on a student visa at a college or university in the U.S. at the time your entry is submitted. Only one submission per person will be accepted. 

Important dates 

Submit your entry by 23:59 EST on September 29, 2023. The winner will be announced on October 20, 2023.
