The Summit will cover all lodging and meals incurred during the program and travel up to $800USD for students confirmed to participate. NYU Abu Dhabi students must apply for funding through the NYU Abu Dhabi Advancement Opportunity application which can be found on the Student Portal. The Advancement Opportunity page outlines the criteria and timeline for requesting AO funding. It's important that students submit their application no later than 3-4 weeks prior to when they need the funding. NYU Abu Dhabi students who have any questions about the application or process can send an email to: email@example.com.
No, it is not an automatic excuse. It is up to the participant to contact their academic advisor or faculty members to request any academic accommodations related to participation in the Summit, and to work with professors to make up missed work if possible. We will be happy to provide documentation of your participation to your professors.
Yes, you can still apply if this year’s program goal and focus is of special interest to you. However, preference will be given to candidates who have not previously participated in the Summit.
