Why should you give to the NYU Steinhardt Art Department?
Because young artists belong in Downtown New York
The NYU Steinhardt Department of Art and Art Professions is one of the most innovative art programs in the country - combining the vibrant energy of downtown New York with the intellectual resources and global reach of a great research university.
Because we need your help
NYU does not have the large endowments of traditional ivy league schools and we need your help to offer scholarships to students in need. By every standard, NYU's transformation from a conventional commuter school to a top-ranked research university has been remarkable. With your help, the NYU Steinhardt Art Department can include students from all backgrounds.
The Steinhardt Friends of Art
The NYU Steinhardt Friends of Art group was formed to enable exceptional young artists to attend NYU Steinhardt's Art Programs. Members make a minimum annual contribution of $5,000, which goes directly to fund scholarships for outstanding applicants who would not otherwise be able to finance their dream of studying art at NYU. In recognition, Friends are invited to share in the extraordinary energy of the program with special events each semester in our galleries and studios, hosted by faculty and alumni.
