The New School maintains an extensive program of scholarships and grants-in-aid based on academic merit and demonstrated financial
need. Awards are usually made as part of the admission process. Institutional
scholarships may be combined with government supported grants and loans
in a single financial aid package. Scholarships and grants are normally
applied to tuition costs. They can range from several hundred dollars
to full tuition and do not require repayment.
Scholarships may be reduced or canceled if requested
applications and verification documents are not received by the stated
deadlines. Need-based scholarships do not automatically renew for the
same amount in subsequent years. Changes in need calculations, late
FAFSA submission, or refusal of a subsidized student loan may result in a modified award.
All undergraduate students are considered for scholarships based on their academic merit. Availability of institutional merit-based scholarships varies according to academic program. Students who file FAFSA or the Undergraduate International Student Scholarship Application will be considered for institutional scholarships based on merit and demonstrated financial need. U.S. citizens and eligible residents may qualify for U.S. government and New York State fellowships and grants based on merit and financial need.
Applicants for graduate school who are seeking financial aid should notify their prospective academic department early in the application process. Graduate students are automatically considered for university merit-based scholarships and fellowships as part of the admission process. Note however: For U.S. citizens and permanent residents, limited scholarship funds are usually combined with government supported grants and loans in a financial aid package, so applicants must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Graduate students are notified of their scholarship awards soon after their admission in a letter from either their academic program or Student Financial Services.
We strongly recommended that all students pursue scholarships, fellowships, and grants-in-aid available from organizations and agencies unaffiliated with The New School. Student Financial Services maintains a list of other scholarship opportunities, which is updated regularly as we become aware of new scholarship opportunities.
The most important thing to remember about scholarship and fellowship searches is to start early, as application deadlines are often several months to a year in advance of award disbursal.
