New York University has established five scholarships in memory of the uniformed fire, police, and emergency workers who were killed in the September 11, 2001 tragedy at the World Trade Center to enable their dependent children to attend NYU.

Eligibility

Preferred consideration is given to the dependents and spouses of uniformed members of the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY), the New York Police Department (NYPD), the Port Authority Police Department (PAPD), and other emergency response workers who died at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. (The dependents of other victims of 9/11 are not eligible.) There is no New York State residency requirement, however most require students to be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Students must apply and be admitted to a four-year undergraduate degree program at New York University under normal admission standards.

Transfer students from other undergraduate programs are also eligible.

Students in graduate, professional, non-degree, or non-credit programs are not eligible for these scholarships.

Students must maintain full-time matriculation during each semester in which they receive scholarship funds and they must maintain satisfactory academic progress to continue to be eligible. Students may receive scholarship funds for up to eight semesters at NYU.

How to Apply

Once admitted, eligible students must first submit all the required financial aid applications by our published NYU deadlines and also apply for the New York State World Trade Center Memorial Scholarship. NYU scholarship funds will then be used to accommodate any remaining need, up to the full cost of education at New York University.

Costs Covered

Scholarship awards may be used to support tuition, registration fees, and room and board (for NYU housing only), but not health services or other activity and support fees.
