      Scholarships and Financial Aid

      As a U.S. citizen or a permanent U.S. resident, you qualify for financial aid. As a U.S. or international student, you may qualify for scholarships through The New School. All new students who have submitted a tuition deposit should have already completed the financial aid process.
