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. If you are interested in politics, advocacy and supporting financial aid then join us next year!
About NYU Albany Day
Each year, a delegation of NYU students and staff 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. 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).
How to Join Us
Registration will be available for the 2017 trip in the late Fall of 2016, check back soon to sign up. The day long program includes meetings in teams with legislators' offices, attending a rally on student aid and a visit to the NYS Capitol and all transportation and meals are provided.
