Support the Program

Since 1997, the Parsons Scholars program has been supporting students who have a passion for art and design so that they can pursue these areas through college education and lifelong careers. The ongoing generosity of individuals and organizations enables us to continue this important work.

Every donation is an investment in the success of our students. For information on how to donate, please visit our “Make a Gift” page.

If you are an artist or designer who would like to get involved or share your experience with our Scholars, please contact us at
