• Institutional Scholarships
  • Merit-Based Funding

    Merit-based scholarships are awarded during the admission process and are based on the strength of an application and, if applicable, an audition or portfolio. No additional application components are required for merit-based scholarships. Recipients of these scholarships are usually notified in their letters of acceptance; decisions are final at the time of admission. The scholarships are renewed from year to year, as long as the recipients are making progress toward completing their degrees and meet the enrollment and academic requirements of their departments.

    Financial Aid Appeal for Additional Funding

    The university does offer limited grant funding for current students who have experienced changes in their financial circumstances during their enrollment. Qualifying students have experienced an extenuating or unexpected change in financial circumstances, are taking advantage of all financing options currently available to them (loan and work study options), and are making plans to finance the remainder of their New School degree.

    Students who wish to request an exception to the registration or tuition refund policy can click here to access our University Appeals process.

    If you have any questions about your financial aid offer, please speak to a financial aid counselor. All institutional awards are subject to Award Terms and Conditions.
