The Parsons scholars program is a free 2 1/2 year program for NYC public school students from low-income backgrounds who are interested in art and design. Accepted students participate from 10th through 12th grade. The cost of participation is included, including: seven studio courses, six transferable college credits, art supplies, SAT PREP courses and college guidance.

Parsons Scholars apply their strong interest in art and design to creative careers, critical thinking, social change, community building, and future studies at Parsons School of Design and other colleges. This unique framework is a leading national model for college and career access and racial equity in art and design.
