External Scholarships

Students looking for additional funding for their studies abroad should be aware that scholarships are available through many organizations outside of NYU. Please keep in mind that NYU does not administer these scholarships and has no authority to award funding through these programs, alter scholarship application deadlines, or adjust application requirements, but our students have received funding through these programs in the past. Visit the External Scholarships page for more information.

For Visiting Students

Federal Loans

Students currently enrolled at another college or university should contact their home college or university's financial aid office to investigate the possibility of receiving financial assistance through their own school. Most schools will administer certain kinds of financial aid on behalf of their students who register for classes elsewhere; however, this will require the student to complete the home school's consortium agreement. This consortium agreement between schools needs to be completed by both the home school and the visiting school (NYU).

Please note:  It will take up to three weeks for NYU to complete the consortium agreement and send it back to your home school.

Nonfederal loans

In most cases, visiting students seeking nonfederal loans do not have to complete a consortium agreement but instead are required to complete the Non-NYU Undergraduate Summer Aid Application. On the Summer Aid Application, the student should indicate that he or she is a visiting student seeking nonfederal aid. For more information about private loan options and the application process, see

Visiting Undergraduates: Go to the NYU Office of Financial Aid website and complete the Summer Financial Aid Application for Non-NYU (Visiting) Students. This form becomes available on the website in February/March of each year. Please make sure to read all information for pertinent deadlines.

For NYU Graduate Students

There is limited aid for graduate students during the summer and most of the aid is administered directly by the individual schools.
