This is to inform our students that the Management of the New York University, United States of America understands that Financial aid plays a critical role in many students’ decisions on which college or university they will choose and can consist of scholarships, loans, grants, and work study. The resources below will guide new students to apply for scholarships.
NYU strives to recognize both the academic strength and the financial need of each applicant when reviewing for scholarships. All undergraduate applicants to NYU are automatically considered for merit based aid with the on-time submission of the admissions application; however, it is important to note that only 1-2% of undergraduate scholarships are based solely on merit. A majority of the undergraduate scholarships at NYU are based on a combination of need and merit and require filing all financial aid applications by the university deadlines.
In order to award scholarships as equitably as possible, it is extremely important that you file your financial aid applications on time. Filing late will prevent you from being considered for a majority of scholarships at NYU and since the amount of scholarship a student receives in their first year is typically the amount they will continue to receive each year if they remain otherwise eligible, filing late can affect eligibility in future years.
