The NYUAD Global Ph.D. Student Fellowship

Students who would like to undertake research in biology, chemistry, and engineering with NYU Abu Dhabi faculty may do so through the Global Ph.D. Student Fellowship. The Fellowship is a collaboration between NYU Abu Dhabi, the NYU Graduate School of Arts and Science (GSAS), and the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering (NYU-Poly).

Students who are admitted to the Global Ph.D. Student Fellowship complete graduate coursework with their respective NYU departments in New York, and then spend subsequent years working with NYUAD faculty members in Abu Dhabi.

Prospective Ph.D. students in biology and chemistry apply through the standard NYU GSAS admission process, while engineering students apply to the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering. There is no separate application for the Global Ph.D. Student Fellowship; any applicant expressing interest in undertaking the research phase of the Ph.D.with NYUAD faculty will be considered. Applications will be reviewed by joint committees of faculty from GSAS or NYU-Poly and NYUAD. All graduation requirements will follow those of the NYUNY department.

Successful applicants will be offered admission to the Ph.D. program by GSAS or NYU-Poly, and Fellowship offers will be extended by NYUAD. Fellowship offers are contingent on the student obtaining the necessary UAE and US visas.
