As of Friday, March 13th, the NYU Leadership Initiative physical location is closed, but all staff are working remotely until futher notice.

Updates and Frequently Asked Questions

Effective March 13, 2020, NYU is implementing specific measures and restrictions to keep the NYU community healthy and to contribute to checking the spread of the novel coronavirus, including moving to remote instruction. In accordance with these University guidelines, the NYU Office of Global Awards is henceforth moving to virtual programming and advising until further notice.

While this is undeniably disruptive, the Office of Global Awards remains committed to supporting you as you explore and pursue merit-based fellowship opportunities. All staff will continue to work regular hours and our support will be virtual rather than offered at our physical office location. Our immersive programs, events, and Global Awards advising will continue on schedule remotely using NYU Zoom, unless otherwise specified.
