Student National Scholarship Competitions

From Fulbright grants to Goldwater Scholarships, NYU students have been awarded many of the nation's most prestigious and competitive scholarships, grants and awards.  The NYU Office for National Scholarships guides students to a diverse catalog of prestigious scholarship contests, advises interested students through the application process and can point to other scholarship resources to help students meet their needs.

Each of NYU's undergraduate schools has a scholarships adviser to assist students in the preparation of their applications. It is important to note that NYU campus deadlines are significantly earlier than the foundation deadlines. 

University endorsement must be obtained prior to submitting an application for a national scholarship. In order to obtain endorsement, students must submit a draft application to the NYU Office of National Scholarships by the designated campus deadline. As part of the application process, all draft application materials are reviewed, students are interviewed, and candidates are selected for endorsement.

Letters from the president or a dean will be written only after a student has this approval. Faculty and administrators representing all of the University's undergraduate schools participate in the review process.
