About the Gural Scholars Program

The Jeff Gural Academic Achievement and Opportunity Scholars Program (Gural Scholars Program) is a scholarship program for students at Eugene Lang College. The program provides $5,000 each year for a select group of Lang students. In addition to receiving a supplemental scholarship each year until graduation, Scholars bring theory to practice in their courses that culminates in a final project that is shared with The New School community.

The Gural Scholars program is more than a scholarship – it is a multi-year commitment to developing work and identity as a social justice scholar and activist. Scholars think critically about their personal relationships to power and privilege, and about how to challenge structural inequities and dismantle systems of oppression. They build a community with one another and outside of The New School through critical reflection, ethical engagement, and activism.
