Why

The needy Black and Latino Pratt students aided by the proceeds of this event are our future leaders in industrial design, interior design, architecture and fashion, as well as fine arts, education, library science and other important disciplines offered in the Pratt curriculum. Pratt Institute is one of the top three visual art institutions of higher education in the nation and the only one of its kind with a Black Alumni organization.
About The Black Alumni of Pratt (BAP) ––BAP was founded in 1990 to identify and advance scholastic and professional opportunities for Pratt alumni and talented, yet needy students of African and Latino descent attending Pratt. What started as a small group of humble Black alumni of Pratt has evolved into an organization of alumni, friends, and corporations, who have accomplished: over $2.2 million dollars in stipends and scholarship funds, $1.6 million in endowed scholarship fund, $193,000 in full-time scholarships and room and board for seniors, and $335,000 in stipends for materials and supplies.  
 The Black Alumni of Pratt continues to guide and support the designers, educators, illustrators, painters and sculptors of the future.  We set a high standard for ourselves
 and have proven that we can support our targeted population while also bringing together people of different races.  We look forward to a future of continued growth
and achievement.
