We continue to be grateful to the generous support of our community who, over the past month, supported thousands of relief fund awards to NYU graduate and undergraduate students resulting in excess of $6,500,000 in grants distributed to students with immediate financial needs due to COVID-19. The University is committed to using Federal CARES Act funding for direct student assistance, including continuing the NYU COVID-19 RELIEF GRANT program, through the rest of the summer and into the fall. Enrolled students with financial need will be considered due to hardships they might be experiencing associated with the disruption of on-campus services, such as supplies, technology, and other limited educational expenses.

The process to apply is simple and open to all students - undergraduate and graduate - with priority for those who have filed for and received financial aid. Students need to be enrolled in the semester for which they apply. The review for students enrolled in Fall 2020 will begin August 17, 2020.
