Scholarships & Financial Aid
If you are a NYU undergraduate who will receive a degree from NYU in New York and are spending a semester or year abroad at an NYU Global Academic Center, here are a few things you should know:
- Studying abroad does not necessarily cost more than studying in New York. The cost of housing, meals, and daily living abroad is comparable and in some cases less expensive than New York City. You can consider typcial expenses by location on the Study Away Cost Estimates chart.
- The cost of tuition and registration fees remains the same, and your NYU financial aid package applies while you study at an NYU Global Academic Center.
- Students who apply and qualify for financial aid will be considered for additional aid for their semester abroad.
- Need-based and merit-based study abroad scholarships and grants are available through NYU Global Programs and many external organizations.
Additional Financial Aid
All admitted Study Away undergraduate students who will receive a degree from NYU in New York applying for financial aid will be automatically evaluated for the Global Pathways Scholarship. This need based award of up to $4,000 per semester (depending on demonstrated need) is to help cover the additional costs of studying away. Students must have a current FAFSA or CSS Profile application on file with the university to be considered. Students will receive an award notification beginning in June (for fall semester) and in November (for spring semester). Students follow the regular Office of Financial Aid process for applying for need based aid.
Global Programs Merit Scholarships
A small group of students that have been admitted for a semester study at one of the NYU Academic Centers will be awarded a merit grant of $1,500. Awards will be determined based on the quality of the student’s application and academic record. Selected students will be informed shortly after notification. All funding is posted as tuition credit to the recipient’s NYU student account. No additional application is required.
