Financial Aid & Scholarships
New York University believes that students should be able to choose the school that offers them the best range of educational opportunities. In order to make that choice possible, New York University attempts to aid students who are in need of financial assistance.
Financial aid is awarded in an effort to help students meet the difference between their own resources and the cost of education. All awards are subject to availability of funds and the student's demonstrated need. Renewal of assistance depends on annual reevaluation of a student's need, the availability of funds, the successful completion of the previous year, and satisfactory progress toward completion of degree requirements. In addition, students must meet the published filing deadlines.
Many awards are granted purely on the basis of scholastic merit. Others are based on financial need. However, it is frequently possible to receive a combination of awards based on both. Thus, University scholarships or fellowships may be granted by themselves or in conjunction with student loans or Federal Work-Study employment. To ensure that maximum sources of available support will be investigated, students must apply for financial aid by the appropriate deadline.
