NYU’s Endorsement Process

Any student or recent graduate wishing to apply for the McCall MacBain Scholarship must apply for and be accepted into the Global Awards Application Development Cohort (ADC).  The ADC typically involves weekly meetings throughout the summer.  In these sessions, students receive training and support on narrative development, understanding international graduate programs, essay writing, and more. Completing the ADC is a prerequisite for receiving NYU’s endorsement.  The preliminary application is typically released in early spring semester with a deadline in late March/early April.

Late applicants will be considered on a case-by-case basis.  If you have missed the preliminary deadline and would like to be considered for the McCall MacBain Scholarship, contact the Director of Global Awards as soon as possible: Kurt Davies (

This process is only for students from New York City campuses.  Students from NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai should contact the Global Awards office on their campus for information about that campus’s McCall MacBain process.
