Michigan State University (MSU) is a public research university in East Lansing, Michigan, United States. MSU was founded in 1855 and became the nation’s first land-grant institution under the Morrill Act of 1862, serving as a model for future land-grant universities.

  • Excelling academically
  • Come from an economically disadvantaged background
  • Having demonstrated the will to give back to your community, country, or continent
  • Having expressed the desire and intention to return to your home country after completing your studies.

Apply For New York University (NYU) Scholarships | USA

This is to inform our students that the Management of the New York University, United States of America understands that Financial aid plays a critical role in many students’ decisions on which college or university they will choose and can consist of scholarships, loans, grants, and work study. The resources below will guide new students to apply for scholarships.

NYU strives to recognize both the academic strength and the financial need of each applicant when reviewing for scholarships. All undergraduate applicants to NYU are automatically considered for merit based aid with the on-time submission of the admissions application; however, it is important to note that only 1-2% of undergraduate scholarships are based solely on merit. A majority of the undergraduate scholarships at NYU are based on a combination of need and merit and require filing all financial aid applications by the university deadlines.

In order to award scholarships as equitably as possible, it is extremely important that you file your financial aid applications on time. Filing late will prevent you from being considered for a majority of scholarships at NYU and since the amount of scholarship a student receives in their first year is typically the amount they will continue to receive each year if they remain otherwise eligible, filing late can affect eligibility in future years.

If you find you are in need of additional financial aid, there are a few options to consider based on your circumstances.

  • If your financial situation (or your spouse’s or parents) has drastically changed since you filed the FAFSA, please review the Professional Judgment form located on our Applications and Forms menu. If you meet one of the criteria listed, you might be eligible to have your federal financial aid eligibility reviewed.
  • If you are a returning undergraduate student, consider appealing for additional scholarship through the online Appeal for Returning Undergraduate Students via Applications and Forms. This option is typically available in mid-November to be reviewed for the spring term and in mid-May to be considered for the following fall term.
  • Financial Aid for Graduate students is usually administered by the student’s respective graduate school. Students seeking additional funding through their school can contact their specific graduate school contacts to determine eligibility criteria.  Go to References and Resources and see the School Financial Aid Contacts in the right column.
  • Consider seeking outside scholarships. Typically if a student is awarded aid from an organization outside of NYU, the student’s NYU aid is not directly affected. For more details on how to apply please see Scholarships and Grants from Other Organizations.
