Parsons Scholars Pre-College Program

Parsons Scholars is a college preparatory program designed to give access to Parsons to a diverse body of talented students who might not otherwise have such an opportunity. The program offers multi-year scholarships to New York City public high school students.

Please refer to this information worksheet for details on how to apply.

The Parsons Scholars program is a multi-year, need-based scholarship program for motivated New York City public school students interested in art and design study. Accepted students participate from 10th grade through 12th grade.

Parsons Scholars have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of studio subjects in the Pre-College Academy and Summer Intensive Studies programs, where they acquire skills and knowledge that will help them gain admission to and succeed in colleges of art and design. In addition to taking classes, students participate in workshops and field trips to gain exposure to art and design fields. Students earn college credit and a Pre-College Certificate from Parsons upon successful completion of the Parsons Scholars program.
