Grants and Fellowships
Funding for Master's Programs
Financial aid is available for certain departments and programs. Interested applicants should submit the application form by the financial aid deadline date. In addition, master’s students are eligible for awards through the Graduate School's Tuition Incentive Program. For more specific information regarding eligibility and the availability of fellowships, applicants should call the director of graduate studies in the department or program, or contact Graduate Enrollment Services.
Funding for International Students
To secure a visa, international students must demonstrate that they have sufficient funding to complete the degree. International students who apply by the specified deadline and are admitted to the Graduate School are automatically considered for Graduate School fellowships and scholarships as well as for teaching and research assistantships. Most loan programs are restricted to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. International students may apply for these domestic loan programs, however, with a cosigner who is a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident of the United States. In addition, New York University works with a variety of lenders to provide loan programs specifically tailored to the needs of international students. Visit our Web site frequently for the latest news on international student financing opportunities.
Many international students obtain support for their educational expenses from their governments, foundations, or private agencies. In many cases, these students are eligible to receive matching tuition funds through the Graduate School’s Tuition Incentive Program. Applicants should contact Graduate Enrollment Services for specific details.
