About Legends

The Legends Awards celebrate distinguished individuals and corporations in the world of art and design, whose accomplishments and values resonate with those of Pratt Institute. Each year, Legends raises essential funds to provide financial aid to Pratt students based on need and merit. Eighty percent of Pratt's students require financial aid to pursue their educations. Every dollar raised through Legends strengthens the student body by increasing the scholarship endowment-allowing the most qualified students an opportunity to attend one of the world's foremost schools of art, design, and architecture, regardless of their financial background.
