Melquain Jatelle Anderson Memorial Scholarship for Sociology

For more information on scholarships and deadlines, please click here.

Melquain Jatelle Anderson was a Brooklyn Knight born and raised in Brooklyn.  He lived in Sheepshead Bay, but often traveled to Vinegar Hill (Farragut Houses) where his grandmother lived, his mother was raised, and he had a host of friends.  At 17 years old, he started helping other young men study and pass their GED.  Melquain’s aspiration was to give back to the community because he had seen so many young men give up on school.

After obtaining his Associates of Science degree from Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3), he became even more committed to making a change. Melquain transferred to John Jay College where he hoped to obtain his Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and then attend law school. Melquain’s plan was to start a community center helping young men obtain their GEDs and attend college. Although Melquain’s life was cut short before he could fulfill his dreams of giving back to the community, his family wants his dream to live on.

Founded in his loving memory, the Melquain Jatelle Anderson Memorial Scholarship for Sociology is funded through the generous support of his family, friends, and colleagues.

Art A Catalyst For Change: 2018 Culmination Events!

June is Gun Violence Awareness Month and I am thrilled to share that we had over one thousand students participate in our Art A Catalyst for Change culmination events this month across all 5 boroughs. Art A Catalyst for Change is a New York City Council initiative, which I was proud to spearhead, that provides after-school programming at select middle and high schools located where high incidences of gun violence occur.

It is so important that we remind young people early and often that they have the power to affect change in their communities! Young people are already leading the way in communities across the country and we must continue to give them resources and support, like art activism programs, to further cultivate their leadership!!!

Thank you to my Council colleagues for their leadership and support of this initiative: Speaker Corey Johnson and Council Members Debi Rose, Alicka Samuel, Robert E. Cornegy Jr., Mark Treyger, Inez Barron, Jumaane D. Williams, Bill Perkins, Diana Ayala, Fernando Cabrera, Vanessa L. Gibson, Andy King, Donovan Richards, Jimmy Van Bramer,  and Adrienne Adams.

Another major thank you to our partners: 2020 Vision for Schools, Inc./Thrive Collective, Museum of the Moving Image, Black Spectrum Theatre Company, Sundog Theatre, Inc. BRIC Arts, and The Bronx Museum of Arts.

Our young people are so incredibly TALENTED and we have a RESPONSIBILITY to nourish those GIFTS and show them how they can use them to give back to their communities!!! Photo highlights of the culmination events below!
