Graduate Financial Aid

Attending graduate school is an investment in your future and a serious commitment of time and money. NYU Steinhardt is committed to assisting graduate applicants in the process of financing their education.

Each year, we award several million dollars in scholarships to new students, from partial tuition funding to fellowships and assistantships based on merit and financial need. By combining such types of aid with loans, college work-study, and student employment, both full-time and part-time students can complete their advanced degrees.
