Scholarships and Grants from Other Organizations
In addition to the sources of gift aid described on the website, you may also be eligible for a private scholarship or grant from an outside organization or agency. Some sources to explore are employers, unions, professional organizations, and community and special interest groups.
Many extensive scholarship search services are available free online. The scholarships and information presented by such services are not verified or endorsed by NYU. You must notify the Office of Student Financial Services at the College of Dentistry if you receive funds from any outside organization.
Outside scholarships are considered a financial aid resource and must be added to a student's financial aid award. The Office of Student Financial Services first applies the outside scholarship to a student's unmet need that is not already covered by financial aid. In some cases, loans not based on financial need may be reduced (private loans, Federal Unsubsidized Stafford, Graduate PLUS). If the student's need is already met by need-based aid, then that aid is replaced with the outside scholarship. Scholarship from the College of Dentistry will be cancelled if the outside scholarship covers full tuition and fees. Total aid (including outside assistance) cannot exceed the cost of attendance.
