The Parsons Scholars Program is a college access program for NYC public high school students who are passionate about pursuing higher education in art and design. Parsons Scholars dedicate their Saturdays and summers to studio coursework and workshops which expose them to a range of exciting art and design careers and majors.

For more information including application and registration details please visit the Parsons site.

Parsons School of Design is pleased to invite 10th graders who are interested in art & design to apply for an extraordinary pre-college scholarship opportunity.

The Parsons Scholars Program provides youth from under-represented backgrounds the opportunity to explore art & design in a college environment. Accepted students receive college credit while preparing for the college admissions process at no cost to them. (Note: this is a pre-college scholarship, and not a college scholarship.) For more information, download our information sheet here.

Applications for the 2017-18 recruiting season are now closed. Please check back in August 2018 for updates on how students who will be in 10th grade in Fall 2018 can apply.
