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!

Join us on April 9 at the President's Penthouse!

All 1831 Fund donors are invited to a special thank-you toast with John Sexton at the President's Penthouse on April 9 from 6 - 8 pm. We hope to see you there!

Your gift is triple matched!
