A limited number of scholarships are available to academically qualified students who demonstrate a high level of financial need. International students are not eligible for scholarships and scholarships will not cover the full cost of the program for any recipients.

Students who are interested in financial aid should submit their Precollege application by March 25 to ensure they can submit the scholarship application by the deadline.

The scholarship deadline is April 1, 2015.

Please note: Students interested in applying for the NYU Precollege Scholarship should complete the following steps:  

  • Submit the 2015 Precollege on-line Application (includes: Personal Statement and Official High School Transcript) and select YES to the question "Are you interested in Financial Aid"
  • Within 48 hours of submitting the online application, students will receive an email with instructions for submitting the 2015 NYU Precollege Scholarship Application.
  • Students will be asked to activate their NYU credentials (which will be included in the email) and access the online application.
  • There are no supplemental materials that need to be submitted, students will self-report Family Household financial information directly from the 1040.   

Scholarship information will be reviewed by the NYU Office of Financial Aid and decisions will be emailed directly to student's NYU email accounts beginning in Mid-March.  Students will not receive decisions about scholarships until AFTER they receive their admissions decision.
