The Passion Project
Due to New York City education budget cuts, the variety of school-sponsored extracurricular and extra-classroom activities is decreasing. The Passion Project provides students with the means to enroll in out-of-school programs that further develop their interests and passions so that they can benefit from a “full-educational” experience.
What is the Passion Project Scholarship?
Passion Project Scholarships are one-time scholarships to fund a student’s involvement in an activity he/she is passionate about but does not have access to. Examples of passions that students may intend to pursue include, but are not limited to, athletics, arts, tutoring, music, etc. If the student already has a specific organization or program he/she wishes to participate in to further this passion, the student should specify that organization in this application; Hark Society will otherwise help students selected for the scholarship to find an appropriate activity or program that furthers the student’s passion. The organization or program must be acceptable to both the student and Hark Society.
