Non-NYU Students

If you are a visiting student spending a semester or year at an NYU Global Academic Center you should be aware of the following funding opportunities:

  • Financial Aid Transfer (Consortiums)
  • Merit-based scholarships through NYU Global Programs
  • Need-based grants through NYU Global Programs
  • External study abroad scholarships and grants

Financial Aid Transfer

In many cases, non-NYU students who receive financial aid from their home school are able to apply some or all of their financial aid toward studying abroad through NYU. To initiate the transfer process, visit the financial aid office at your home institution ASAP and ask to have a consortium agreement established with NYU. This allows your school to process federal aid and transfer it to NYU for a semester or year abroad.

The Office of Financial Aid of your home institution should fax the form to our office at (212) 995-4103, email a scanned copy to global.admissions@nyu.edu, or mail to the NYU Office of Global Programs at 110 East 14th Street, New York, NY 10003. Consortium forms are due to our office by May 1st if applying for the fall and November 1st for spring semester. Late applications will be accepted but may impact processing time.

Need-Based Grants from NYU

Need-based study abroad grants of $1000 - $5000 per semester are available to help students with demonstrated financial need defray the costs associated with studying abroad. Grants are awarded as credit posted to your NYU student account. For consideration for need-based aid, you must submit a copy of your SAR (Student Aid Report), most recent Financial Aid Award Letter and complete the online application with essay.  Please send as an email attachment to kate.bruce@nyu.edu or hard copy to NYU Global Programs atten: Kate Bruce, 110 E 14th Street, Lower Level, NY, NY 10003.
