Design Capital Diversity Scholarship
Applications for Fall 2022 are now being accepted!
See timeline below.
The NewSchool Foundation offers the Diversity Scholarship as part of our mission to enhance and augment educational experiences for students at NewSchool of Architecture and Design. The scholarship provides financial support to students who enrich diversity for the academic community. Recipients receive $5,000 towards tuition, awarded in the Fall Quarter of two subsequent academic years.
The NewSchool Foundation celebrates diversity and recognizes that every individual brings their own unique experience to enrich NewSchool’s community. Diversity provides understanding of and appreciation for humanity, cultures, and the design of our environments. When students relate to qualities and conditions different from their own, NewSchool gains new and valuable perspectives that enhance and augment educational experiences.
