Mission

To empower young adults and support youth development through mentorship, scholarships, grants, exposure, and experience. We provide opportunities for supporting youth in the arts, media, journalism, entrepreneurship, and related fields.

Programs

The inaugural programs for year one of Parle Endeavors, Inc., include several youth-centered investments.

Scholarships & Grants

First, we will launch our scholarship and grant applications for high school seniors in New York City. The scholarships will be available to young people who are on track to graduate high school in June or August of 2023 and plan on attending a 2 or 4-year college program. Students should be pursuing a degree and a career in media, communications, journalism, business, or a closely related field.

Additionally, we will offer a grant for high school juniors and seniors who don’t necessarily plan on attending college but also want to pursue a career in media, communications, journalism, business, or a closely related field.

The specific amounts are to be determined, but our goal is to provide at least 4 scholarships valued at $2500 each, and 4 grants, also valued at $2500 each in the first year.

Anticipated launch: Applications open February 6th, 2023

The submission deadline is May 5th, 2023

Winners Announced the week of June 5th, 2023

This will be an annual commitment.
