- Scholarship Description
New York University is committed to providing financial aid packages that take into account financial need. Unlike loans, if you receive a scholarship or grant from New York University or an outside organization, you will not need to repay those funds. You will continue to receive your NYU scholarship during your time at New York University as long as you are a full-time student taking at least 12 credits. Part-time students taking between 6 and 11 credits will have their scholarships prorated. Credits need to be applicable to your degree progress.
Eligible students are the dependents of uniformed members of the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY), New York Police Department (NYPD), and Port Authority Police Department (PAPD) who died at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. (The dependents of other victims of 9/11 are not eligible.) There is no New York residency requirement. Eligible students must apply and be admitted to a four-year undergraduate degree program at NYU under normal admission standards. This is open to full-time undergraduates, as well as transfer students. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
