The 1831 Fund is a student organization that raises money for scholarships for incoming freshmen and transfer students. It was founded by a group of students in 2010, who believed it was their opportunity to ensure the NYU experience for future generations. Last year, 61% of the senior class donated, generating nearly 200 scholarships! We're counting on YOU to help us break that record.

Why is my senior gift important?

  • It helps create scholarships for incoming students at your school. 100% of your donation goes directly to scholarships.
  • It increases NYU's rankings. Senior class giving is factored into NYU's ranking from U.S. News and World Report. Almost every college across the country has a senior giving campaign.
  • It shows your commitment to the next generation of NYU students.
