The William Randolph Hearst Scholarship Fund was created in June of 1986. Funds from the Hearst Foundation Endowment support and encourage partnerships between Parsons and the non-profit community.
The scholarship committee will review all materials received for the William Randolph Hearst Scholarship and select winners in May 2013. Parsons will award scholarships of at least $2,000 each for as many as six students engaged in socially responsible art or design projects.
The committee will give preference to proposals that address issues related to: The Urban, Sustainability, Diversity, The Global, and Social/Personal Agency through Art/Design Practice. Financial need is also considered as a criterion.
Eligibility: Open to Parsons juniors, seniors, and graduate students. Interested students must submit all application materials by April 5.
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
