The NewSchool Foundation is currently working on several major projects.

Pillars Scholarship

The Pillars Scholarship was established by the NewSchool Foundation to provide financial support for NewSchool students whose academic achievement and commitment to one or more of the School’s Pillars advance his or her education and the institution’s mission through specific summer activities. Since 2019, The NewSchool Foundation has partnered with the San Diego Architectural Foundation (SDAF) to fund additional scholarships.
