Each year, a delegation of NYU students, staff, and alumni travel to the State Capitol to advocate for the expansion of state financial aid, sharing their personal stories with New York's most powerful decision-makers.

Through the state budget process, legislators have to make decisions regarding funding key education programs, including financial aid. Students and alumni can offer the decisive voices that tell them to prioritize education in the coming budget year.

Many students who join the trip are themselves recipients of state-funded education aid through programs such as the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) or the Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP).  

The day long program includes meetings in teams with legislators' offices, attending a rally on student aid and a visit to the NYS Capitol. Transportation and meals are provided.  

Pictures of last year's Albany Day trip can be found on our Facebook page and NYU Stories coverage of an NYU freshman who joined the trip in 2015. 

If you have any further questions or would like additional information regarding the Albany Day trip, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Government and Community Affairs at (212) 998-2400. We hope you will join us next year!

NYU in Albany Day 2016  

On February 2, 2016 a group of 60 staff and students joined the New York State Student Aid Alliance Advocacy Day to talk to legislators about the importance of financial aid programs and share their stories and experiences in these programs.  Check out pictures from this year's trip.  If you are interested in politics, advocacy and supporting financial aid then join us next year for a day long trip to Albany to meet with State Legislators and discuss financial aid. All transportation and meals are provided.
