Financial Aid

The term financial aid can encompass many different types of financial support, ranging from scholarships to educational loans. At NYU GPH, students are eligible to be considered for merit-based program scholarships which are awarded as part of the admissions process. In addition to scholarships, many students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents take advantage of federal forms of student aid, such as direct loans and federal work study. In addition to these forms of aid, many students are able to take advantage of on-campus employment opportunities at NYU to help defray the cost of their tuition. For more information about financial aid, please contact

GPH Undergraduate Funding Opportunities

Summer programs and passion projects are instrumental ways through which GPH students have taken their learning outside of the classroom, but they can also be expensive. The GPH Office of Undergraduate Programs has created the following funding opportunities to support GPH students as they enrich and expand their academic experience while also supplementing their professional journeys. Additional details can be found here.
