HEAR US 2023 Information Sessions

A purple bullhorn with the words HEAR US written inside of it. The circle around the bullhorn reads NYU | Tisch School of the Arts at the top, and Honoring, Elevating, and Recapitalizing Underrepresented Stories at the bottom.

HEAR US (Honoring, Elevating, and Recapitalizing Underrepresented Stories) is a mentorship program celebrating and advancing student projects that center marginalized voices and stories. In academic year 2022-23, HEAR US continues to embody Tisch’s commitments against racial inequality by mentoring and funding students who are dedicated to combating systematic marginalization in the creation and leadership of artistic and scholarly works.

During these interactive information sessions you’ll learn more about the HEAR US program including its unique multi-step application process, mentorship, funding, and cohort structure. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and refine your ideal before you begin your application.

Session #1

Our first information session will take place via Zoom Webinar on Wednesday, November 9th from 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET.

If you’d prefer to attend an in person information session join us on Monday, November 21st from 12:30 - 1:30 PM ET in the Dean’s Conference Room on the 12th floor of 721 Broadway.
