All students who complete the M.A. program in one year, taking the full course load of 14-18 points per semester, receive a 30% scholarship applicable to the cost of tuition. The scholarship is not applicable to registration fees or other costs.

Furthermore, all applicants who submit their materials by the January 4th deadline are eligible for a merit-based scholarship applied towards the cost of tuition. A separate application is not required to be eligible. Merit-based scholarships are awarded by the M.A. Admissions Committee based on the application materials submitted for review. Final decisions on the merit-based scholarships are communicated to applicants in the admissions letter.

Through the Tuition Incentive Program (TIP), grants are available for students who secure outside sources of funding. The Graduate School’s TIP program encourages students to apply for external grants and provides matching tuition points (from 50-100%) to eligible recipients of external awards from recognized, academic sources of funding outside NYU.

Additional information on funding opportunities and Financial Aid may be found on the Graduate School of Arts and Science (GSAS) website. Other federal, state, and private scholarships and loans are generally also applicable to foreign study.

New York University also offers several loan programs to students. Information is available on the GSAS website or at the Office of Financial Aid, 212-998-4444.

Working in Spain
Although contractual work opportunities for foreign students in Spain are extremely rare, students who wish to find work have been able to do so. There is a high demand for English teachers in Madrid, and many students have offered private classes earning 12-20€ an hour. Students are not advised to work more than 10 hours per week, however, as the program requires full-time dedication.
