Military Veterans

An NYUSPS degree is well within reach for veterans of the US Armed Forces. NYUSPS is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, which provides scholarship assistance from the University and the US Department of Veterans Affairs. NYUSPS currently provides a $10,000 Yellow Ribbon award, which is matched by the VA for an annual award total of $20,000.

To qualify for the Yellow Ribbon Enhancement, you must apply to the VA. The VA will determine your eligibility for the Post-9/11 GI Bill and will issue you a Certificate of Eligibility. You may then contact the VA Certifications Team at We appreciate your service!

International Students

Financial aid is very limited for international students but resources do exist. Many international students find funding opportunities in their home countries. However, if that is not available, you may wish to consider:

Departmental Scholarships

Some NYUSPS graduate programs offer scholarships based upon academic merit. The majority of departmental awards are open to continuing students after a set number of credits are completed and academic merit in the program is established. Requirements and award amounts vary.

Private Loans

Education loans are made available to international students by private lenders although not all international students will be eligible for every loan program listed.


External Scholarships

Many independent organizations dedicate their efforts to finding and compiling scholarships for international students who seek to study in the United States. Some search engines to help you get started include:


NYU Payment Plans

The Office of the Bursar provides several payment plans to assist students with their tuition payments.
