Due to its commitment to providing support for the best candidates for the Creative Writing in Spanish MFA, New York University partially covers 12 of the 32 unit credits, in the form of 8 credits during the first year and 4 credits during the second year to all admitted applicants.

GSAS Scholarships

The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) awards three full scholarships to three students who have proved an excellent academic performance. The awarded students must be qualified to teach Spanish. These scholarships cover tuition, health insurance, and fees. No application is needed for this fellowship. All applicants to the Creative Writing in Spanish Program are considered and recipients are notified along with their acceptance letter.

Becas parciales por mérito académico para estudiantes de segundo año

MA Scholars

Dos becas que incluyen 12 créditos (adicionales a los 4 créditos de remisión de matrícula de la GSAS Fellowship), seguro médico y tasas. 

Los MA Scholars se encargan, entre otras cosas, de la confección del calendario de eventos, de asistir en el montaje de la revista Temporales y realizan diversas tareas administrativas.

Los candidatos, además de ser recomendados por un profesor del MFA que dé fe de su rendimiento académico, tendrán que demostrar su aptitud para realizar las labores requeridas.  Los finalistas para esta beca serán escogidos en reunión del comité de ayuda financiera.

Los interesados deberán someter una carta de recomendación y una carta de solicitud a la consejera graduada.

Becas Sylvia Molloy

Tres estipendios para estudiantes de segundo año de $5000 ($2,500 por semestre). Los ganadores serán escogidos por el comité de ayuda financiera.

Ayuda adicional contingente

Algunos estudiantes de nuevo ingreso reciben ayuda financiera de sus respectivos países gracias a entidades como Conicyt de Chile o Fonca-Conacyt de México.  En caso de  que un estudiante reciba una de estas becas, los puntos de cobertura que hubiera recibido de NYU serán redistribuidos entre aquellos estudiantes de segundo año que no hayan recibido ninguna de las becas completas y cuyo rendimiento académico lo amerite.

Los candidatos serán escogidos por mérito por  el comité de ayuda financiera a partir del número de puntos disponibles. El orden de la lista de espera se dará a conocer el último día del semestre. La otorgación de estos puntos depende  de los calendarios respectivos de las instituciones que otorgan las becas, cuyas decisiones se conocen en los meses de julio y agosto respectivamente.

Merit-based partial scholarships for second year students

MA Scholars

Two scholarships that include 12 credits (on top of the 4 points covered by the GSAS Fellowship), health insurance, and fees.

The MA Scholars are responsible for the preparation of the program’s events calendar, as well as assisting with the publication process of Temporales magazine and performing various administrative tasks.

The candidates must be recommended by a professor of the MFA who can attest to their academic performance and must also show proof of their ability to perform and complete the required tasks. The finalists will be selected by the Financial Aid committee.

All interested students must submit a recommendation letter and a letter of request to the graduate advisor.

Sylvia Molloy Scholarships

Three stipends of $5000 ($2,500 per semester) are awarded to second year students. The recipients will be selected by the Financial Aid committee.

Additional Aid

First year students may be financially aided by foundations of their own countries, such as Conicyt from Chile or Fonca-Conacyt from Mexico. If a student is awarded one of these scholarships, the tuition points that would have been covered by NYU will be redistributed amongst those second year students that have not received any of the full scholarships and that have a good academic standing.

The applicants will be selected on merit by the Financial Aid committee based on the number of available points. The order of the waiting list will be made public the last day of the semester. The granting of these points is dependent upon the respective calendars of the institutions that award the scholarships, whose decisions are known in the months of July and August respectively.
