The Mission

Momentum -- a scholarship campaign for NYU

By offering greater scholarships, we can continue building the momentum of our University.

"I may be a member of NYU’s Board of Trustees now, but I once was a high school student who couldn’t have attended NYU if not for the generous scholarship I received. NYU put me on a course to make an impact in my profession—and bring my experience back to my alma mater. It’s clear to me now—with our support, NYU can continue unlocking the potential and unleashing the ambitions of the world’s best and brightest students."

Creating opportunities for the Next NYU Generation

Many of the best students in the world seek an NYU education in pursuit of personal dreams to advance scientific knowledge, identify cures for degenerative diseases, tell stories through art and film, and find innovative solutions for sustainable urban development.

They understand what it means to join our worldwide network of award-winning professors and thriving alumni—our greatest foundational asset is our people. Nowhere else will they be offered the same opportunities to gain the knowledge and skills needed to become the next generation of global leaders.

A more accessible NYU, supported by significantly expanded scholarship programs, will create an even stronger NYU in the future. But to secure that future, we understand that we must act now. With the support of leaders like you, we can give our students the confidence to create momentum for our future.
