Our long-term commitment to students begins with their acceptance into one of our graduate programs. More than ever, a graduate education is a significant investment in one's future. We are concerned both with attracting students, as well as helping to ensure they have the financial resources to complete their graduate study.
The Graduate School of Arts and Science (GSAS) offers an extensive program of funding support. Funding decisions, based solely on merit, are made by the departments with the Dean's review.
Funding for most GSAS doctoral students includes a multi-year, full-funding support package through the MacCracken Program. The MacCracken package includes a full-tuition scholarship, a generous and competitive stipend, a Dean's Supplementary Fellowship Grant for start-up educational costs, remission of fees, and student health insurance coverage. In addition to financial support, students have the opportunity to gain valuable teaching experience.
Master's students should contact the director of graduate studies in their department or program to see if scholarship funding or adjunct positions are available. Master's students who receive competitive fellowships from external agencies may be eligible to apply for matching tuition awards through the Graduate School's Tuition Incentive Program.
Graduate School of Arts and Science (GSAS) Tuition Assistance Program for School Teachers provides financial aid to assist elementary and secondary school teachers within the tri-state area with their GSAS tuition. Under this program, the Graduate School will offer a financial aid award of 50 percent of tuition (not including fees) to qualified full-time classroom teachers enrolled in GSAS. The Graduate School is delighted to offer this program in order to make a contribution to the elementary and secondary school educational community.
The Stephen F. Cohen Fellowship is exclusive to NYU. Applicants who are admitted will be considered for the Stephen Cohen Fellowship in Russian and Slavic Studies. This prestigious and selective fellowship may be awarded annually to exceptionally accomplished and promising MA students.
