NYU Abu Dhabi recognizes that higher education is a significant investment in your future, and we aim to attract the best possible students from around the world, regardless of financial circumstances. Every admitted student is considered for some level of merit-based support. Additionally, NYUAD provides financial assistance in the form of need-based scholarship to those who qualify.
In recognition of NYUAD's highly-selective admissions process, and of the important role that the University plays in shaping future world leaders, the Abu Dhabi government provides fellowships to all admitted UAE national students in the form of the Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed NYUAD Scholarship for Exceptional Emirati Students.
All students are automatically considered for merit-based support. Merit-based fellowships may only cover a portion of the estimated cost of attendance.
Admitted Emirati nationals and children of Emirati mothers are awarded the Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed NYUAD Scholarship for Exceptional Emirati Students, a fellowship that covers the tuition, registration fees, foreign travel for study integral to a student's academic program, room and board, health insurance, books, and many campus life activities for four years. A CSS Profile application is required for Emirati nationals who would like to be considered for the need-based personal support stipend.
All other students who file the CSS Profile will be considered for need-based support based on their family's financial circumstances. The NYU Abu Dhabi need-based support may cover up to the full cost of attendance, including tuition, foreign travel for study integral to a student's academic program, room and board, health insurance, personal expenses, books, and many campus life activities. Financial support may also include up to two tickets each year between Abu Dhabi and the student’s country of permanent residence, for those who qualify. NYU Abu Dhabi encourages all students, regardless of citizenship, to file the CSS Profile as the Office of Financial Support gives consideration to a broad range of family situations.
Please note, students whose permanent addresses are within the UAE are not eligible to receive funding for home travel. A student whose permanent residence changes must notify the Office of Global Education at firstname.lastname@example.org and the Office of Financial Support at email@example.com for reconsideration.
New students who are eligible for NYU Abu Dhabi financial support will be notified of their awards at the time they are offered admission, as long as all of the required documents have been provided and the application deadlines are met. Students will receive financial support in the form of merit-based fellowships and/or need-based grants, if applicable.
Students will also receive information on how to access their awards online once they are available. The awards will be provided via the NYU Albert Student Center with an offer letter that outlines all the details of your financial support. Students who have questions or concerns about their award are encouraged to contact the NYU Abu Dhabi Office of Financial Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note accepting the offer of admission is also an acceptance of the financial support award offered.
