The 1831 Fund creates scholarships for students, by students. Led by the senior class and student members of the 1831 Fund Leadership Committee, NYU students ask their classmates to contribute $18.31 in honor of NYU’s founding year.
100% of the funds raised are used to create scholarships for incoming freshmen and transfer students. Alumni, parents, and faculty and staff can partner with our students in this amazing community-building effort by making their own contributions to the 1831 Fund.
Many NYU parents want to provide support that will enhance their child’s NYU experience. The Parents Fund enhances the student experience in ways that tuition alone cannot provide.
