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 2016 raised over $30,000. 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.

Club Competition

We invite any and all student organizations to help increase senior participation to the Fund by encouraging their seniors to donate $18.31 towards student scholarships.

Student clubs that reach 100% senior participation will have their club name engraved on a donor recognition plaque that is located in the Center for Student Activities, Leadership, and Service (CSALS) on the 7th floor in Kimmel.

Register your club here and track your club's progress here.

The Club Competition ends on #GivingTuesday, November 29. Don't miss out and register your club by November 21st!


On November 29th the 1831 Fund and Stern Legacy will join forces with the Young Alumni Leadership Circle (YALC) to host #GivingTuesday at NYU, a nationwide day of giving.

Our goal is to realize 200 donors to the 1831 Fund in just 24 hours — and we can’t do it without you!

Whether you donate $18.31, $50 or $100, the sum of our gifts can make a collective difference in the lives of future students.
