Only 18% of NYC elementary schools provide arts classes to all grades.
The Nagler Scholarship award was created by long-time Urban Arts Partnership Board Member Niclas Nagler to support community-minded students who demonstrate a strong need for financial support in their college years. Each year, a $40,000 scholarship is awarded to one exemplary Academy Senior. Nagler Scholars are committed to their academic success, producing high-quality artistic work, and actively involved in addressing prejudice in their communities.
