Pratt Institute offers a variety of ways for alumni and friends to make a meaningful investment in the education of tomorrow's creative leaders by providing financial support to our students.
Donors who wish to establish a scholarship in their name, or in honor or memory of a loved one, may do so by creating either an endowed or expendable scholarship fund.
Endowed scholarships ensure that Pratt will always be able to offer financial assistance to the most deserving students. Gifts are made to the fund's principal, and a portion of the earnings are used to award scholarships.
Expendable scholarships provide the most immediate support for Pratt students and are awarded in accordance with the donor's wishes until the balance of the fund is expended.
The General Restricted Scholarship Fund
General Restricted Scholarships are awarded to students across Pratt Institute purely on the basis of need. Because admission is based on academic and creative promise, the scholarship helps ensure that no student is denied a Pratt education due to financial constraints. Donors to the General Restricted Scholarship Fund provide essential support that has a meaningful impact on the lives of Pratt students.
