Scholarships By Students, For Students

Fund an NYU dream by making a contribution to the 1831 Fund. 100% of your donation goes to scholarships for incoming freshmen and transfer students.

Hello There!

We are excited to start a new year for the 1831 Fund with a new class! The Class of 2014 raised over $20,000. How ‘bout it? Do you think YOU can beat it?

1831 and $18.31

The 1831 Fund creates scholarships for incoming freshmen and transfer students. With a contribution of $18.31 in recognition of NYU's founding year, you will make a difference in the life of a fellow NYU student by helping to create much-needed scholarships. This year’s 1831 Fund recipients received over $128,000 in combined scholarship funds.

Breaking News!

John Sexton just announced that he will be directing a dollar-for-dollar match for every gift to the 1831 Fund. That means your gift of $18.31 automatically becomes $36.62. Double your impact and make a gift today! Learn More.

Be recognized! Get 100% senior participation from your NYU student group or club and have your name added to a special recognition plaque in Kimmel! Register your club here.
