NYU SHANGHAI GRADUATE FELLOWSHIP
Next Deadline: Thursday, September 19, 2019 (for Spring 2020 award semester)
Each semester, 3-4 awards are available for NYU students who have advanced to the dissertation stage to conduct advanced research or writing in residence at NYU Shanghai. Awards are not limited to GSAS students; students from any NYU school or department are welcome to apply. Successful candidates will join an active community of scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, where interdisciplinary study and cross-fertilization is more the rule than the exception, and will be warmly encouraged to participate in weekly faculty seminars. Applications are especially encouraged from students engaged in research projects related to the strengths of the NYU Shanghai faculty, including but not limited to projects primarily focused on China and surrounding regions. Students are encouraged to visit the NYU Shanghai website to browse profiles of faculty in their discipline and inquire directly with NYU Shanghai faculty about their interest in being a fellowship mentor.
Each NYU Shanghai Graduate Fellowship award includes a stipend, which will reflect 3.5 months (one semester) of the GSAS minimum monthly stipend for the academic year. In 2019-2020, the minimum monthly stipend is $3,205, which equates to $11,217 over one semester. For students still within their MacCracken award term, the waiver of maintenance of matriculation fees, and 100% coverage in the NYU comprehensive health insurance plan for an individual will be covered under the terms of the MacCracken award. For non-MacCracken students as well as students beyond the term of their MacCracken award but still financial aid eligible, a waiver of maintenance of matriculation fees, and 100% coverage in the NYU comprehensive health insurance plan for an individual will also be included in the award. No student is eligible to receive both a Washington Square based fellowship and a Global Dissertation Research and Writing Fellowship in the same year. Work space will be made available on the NYU Shanghai campus. Download the NYU Shanghai Graduate Fellowship Application
- If selected, NYU Shanghai Graduate Fellows commit to being in residence at NYU Shanghai for the entirety of their award semester. Short leaves may be permissible for legitimate academic reasons, however, extended time away may result in forfeiture of the fellowship.
- During the award semester, applicants must be within seven years of their first term of enrollment in the doctoral program or deemed to still be financial aid eligible. Eligibility beyond seven years may be extended on an exception basis, consistent with the Graduate School's normal review of financial aid eligibility. The common reasons for extension are (a) time off for an official leave of absence; (b) up to four semesters of fieldwork, if the field work occurred within the first seven years of enrollment and the student did not receive a GSAS or other institutional stipend for the semester(s); and (c) exceptional academic circumstances that are beyond the student's control (e.g., the academic advisor left; serious illness).
- Applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 3.3 and must have earned 100 percent of credits required for the degree by date of award (courses with I, NR, W, and F grades are not considered successfully completed).
- Fellows should not be projected to defend their dissertation before the conclusion of their award semester.
