Office of Global Awards COVID-19 FAQ
The NYU Leadership Initiative is operating virtually this spring semester to prevent the spread of COVID-19. While our physical location is closed, all staff are working regular hours remotely and remain committed to supporting your leadership development.
Updates and Frequently Asked Questions
Effective March 13, 2020, NYU is implementing specific measures and restrictions to keep the NYU community healthy and to contribute to checking the spread of the novel coronavirus, including moving to remote instruction. In accordance with these University guidelines, the NYU Office of Global Awards is henceforth moving to virtual programming and advising until further notice.
While this is undeniably disruptive, the Office of Global Awards remains committed to supporting you as you explore and pursue merit-based fellowship opportunities. All staff will continue to work regular hours and our support will be virtual rather than offered at our physical office location. Our immersive programs, events, and Global Awards advising will continue on schedule remotely using NYU Zoom, unless otherwise specified.
Please see the FAQs below:
Will the Leadership Initiative office, where Global Awards is housed, remain open even though classes will be remote?
The Leadership Initiative space at 12 Washington Place will be closed during the spring semester. The Office of Global Awards team however will remain available online during regular business hours, Monday through Friday 9am-5pm.
Will 1:1 Global Awards advising appointments still take place?
Yes, they will take place virtually. All in-person meetings and student advising (including office hours) are now being held virtually. Please use this link to access advisor calendars. We will not be holding in-person drop-in hours at either the Washington Square or Brooklyn locations.
We will be adding times throughout the coming weeks, so be sure to check regularly for new availability. Please be sure to honor the appointments that you make, and come to the virtual session with an agenda and specific questions prepared for your advisor. This will enable a richer and more productive conversation.
I still have a question. Where should I direct my inquiry?
For inquiries, we recommend using the following email addresses, which will be monitored regularly:
For general inquiries email firstname.lastname@example.org
For inquiries about UK and Ireland awards (including the Rhodes, Marshall, and Mitchell), email email@example.com
You are welcome to email individual advisors, but you are likely to get a timelier response by utilizing the appropriate address above.
We recognize that moving towards predominantly online services may place a burden on people with different abilities and/or access to technology. Please don’t hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions or concerns by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
