New York University Lenape Scholarship

- Scholarship Description
At NYU, we don’t want money to stand in the way of your success. That’s why many of our students receive some form of financial assistance to help pay for their education. As a student at New York University, you will likely tap into one or more types of financial aid that include scholarships and grants. Scholarships and grants are types of financial aid you don’t have to pay back. NYU offers or recognizes many scholarship options, including programs for new students, current NYU undergraduates, and scholarships from outside sources. As an incoming student at NYU, you are eligible for select scholarships.
In honor of the Lenape people and their lands on which New York University was founded, the Lenape Scholarship will be awarded to incoming first-year Native American students who are engaged with their culture and communities. While preference will be given to Lenape applicants, all Native American first-year applicants are eligible for consideration. Lenape Scholars do not need to be enrolled citizens in their tribal nations, but finalists will be asked to submit a supplemental essay to demonstrate their engagement with their heritage.
