Graduate Fellowship

Application and Notification Timeline

Please Note: Graduate Fellowships are open to new students accepted for Fall enrollment to any full-time, two-year master's program (with the exception of some executive programs), or students that are already enrolled in the schools of law, medicine, dentistry or some three-year Tisch School of the Arts programs and will have two years of study remaining beginning September of their first Reynolds year.

You may not know your admissions status at the time of application. The school makes semifinalist nominations based on those Fellowship applicants whom they are planning to accept to their school. Please contact individual schools for their requirements for admission to a particular program.

Mid-February: Each school selects up to 15 candidates as semifinalists and submits these applications to the NYU Social Entrepreneurship Internal Selection Committee. Note that a maximum of 210 candidates can be named as semifinalists university-wide.

Early March: Up to 30 finalists will be invited by the NYU Social Entrepreneurship Program to participate in Regional Interviews around the world.

Early April: All finalists participate in a two-day selection event of interviews, group exercises and discussions. Some international candidates may participate via Skype. The judges make recommendations for up to 10 Graduate Fellowship winners.

Mid-April: Up to 10 Graduate Fellows are named by the NYU Social Entrepreneurship Program. Finalists will be notified no later than this date.

August: Fellows participate in the NYU SE Program retreat before the beginning of their first Fellowship year.
