The Miss New York Scholarship Organization is an official state license of the Miss America Organization.
The Miss America Organization is one of the nation’s leading achievement programs and one of the world’s largest provider of scholarship assistance for young women. Last year, the Miss America Organization and its state and local organizations made available millions in cash and scholarship assistance.
Participating in the Miss America system helps young women pay for college and prepare for a career through hands-on leadership; all while gaining life experience, working on issues of importance to society, enhancing personal and professional skills and developing artistic expression. As a Miss America state license, we are proud to be part of an iconic American tradition of supporting generations of female leadership.
We continue to uphold the unique tradition of the Miss America Organization talent competition, celebrating women in the arts with academic and professional training scholarships.
Making a difference through personal platforms is at our core. From lobbying on Senate floors to developing workshops in classrooms, we seek to enable women to expand their civic impact and reach.
