  • Gural Scholars

  • Program Description

    The Jeff Gural Academic Achievement and Opportunity Scholars Program is a peer-learning community where an inclusive cohort of students study the elements of intersectional movement-building and social justice through a values-based curriculum. This selective four-year program provides need-based scholarships to Lang students from orientation to graduation--up to twelve per cohort.

    Through a holistic, participatory model, Gural Scholars creates a space where New School faculty and staff commit to providing students with financial support, student advocacy, rigorous academic scholarship, and access to activists and organizers from the movements of our time. Through readings, podcasts, movies, field trips, guest speakers, and community activities, Gural Scholars creates a nourishing environment for students to think critically about how to use what they learn to build a more inclusive and dignified world.

    Student-scholars participate in courses that center social justice taught by practicing scholar activists. Together, the Gural Scholars community (students, faculty and staff) work through tenets of critical inquiry, community building, growth, trust, integrity, change, knowledge-sharing and love of self and community. Students are required to take a 0-2 credit course in the fall and spring semesters that meets Fridays from 12:55 - 2:35pm. We highly recommend students meet with their Student Success advisors to review their course schedule to ensure Gural is a possibility. 

    Gural Scholars is housed in the Office of Civic Engagement and Social Justice at Eugene Lang College. The scholarship is funded by Jeff Gural.
