2014 Parsons Summer Intensive Studies New York Pre-College Scholarship Program

Thank you for your interest in summer programs at Parsons. This letter and application should be used by students applying for the Summer Intensive Studies Pre-College Scholarship program in New York (June 30- July 25, 2014).

The program is intended to help highly motivated students who would not be able to attend for financial reasons. As a Parsons scholarship recipient, you will be following in the footsteps of our previous recipients who have used this opportunity to open doors to art and design. Many of our past scholarship recipients are now studying in degree programs at Parsons or other competitive colleges of art and design. Many others are established as successful artists and designers in their chosen fields.

Please note: This is a tuition-only scholarship. The scholarship does not cover course materials, transportation or housing fees. Students who need housing should not apply for housing before they have received a decision letter by March 15, 2014.

The application deadline is February 1, 2014.

The following documents are required to complete the application:

1. Scholarship application

2. Personal essay addressing the following two questions:*
What interests you about art and design?
How do you anticipate this program will help you develop your interests and meet your future goals?

Be sure to describe your current awareness and exploration of art and design, your interest in the course you select, and comment on your plans for the immediate and distant future.

3. A letter of recommendation (academic)*

4. Proof of income (if selected as a finalist)

* The essay and letter of recommendation should be sent as attachments (Word document or PDF only) to summer@newschool.edu. The essay should be sent by the applicant and the recommendation letter should be sent directly from the recommender.


The selection of the scholarship recipients is based on the information from the scholarship application, your written essay, financial need, and access to similar programs in your school and geographic area.

Scholarship applicants will be notified on March 15, 2014.
Should you receive the scholarship, you have seven (7) days to return the acceptance of scholarship letter. Should you not receive the scholarship, but still wish to attend the program, you will have fourteen (14) days to issue payment. After that time, you will be dropped from the course.
