About The Parsons Scholars Program:
The Parsons Scholars Program is a free, comprehensive, and sequential college-prep program that gives motivated New York City public high school students from diverse backgrounds access to all that Parsons has to offer. Ninety-four percent of Scholars have completed the program and ninety-five percent of these have gone on to college. The vast majority are the first in their families to do so.
The program is made possible by an endowment established by Jacob and Gwendolyn Lawrence. Additional support is provided by Alyce Williams Toonk, The New York Community Trust, Surdna Foundation, Theodore Luce Charitable Trust, LF USA, Coach Foundation, Jennifer Andrus Burroughs, Richard and Jean Coyne Family Foundation, Alexander T. Lee, OXO, Bloomingdale’s, Kay Unger Family Foundation, Jay Godfrey and Dara Rakowski, William and Jane Corbellini, GC Scholarship Foundation, Henry and Barbara Gooss, Jessica Weber, and other generous donors.
