Earning a graduate degree at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering is a smart investment in your future. There are many sources for financing your education, and we are dedicated to helping you secure the right options to meet your needs.


Graduate Assistantships

Positions are available in the Office of Graduate Enrollment Management and Admissions, as well as various academic departments. These positions involve administrative, planning, and advisory duties, as well as teaching and research assistantships.



PhD applicants may be eligible for highly competitive, department-specific fellowship positions that cover tuition and fees.


Payment Plans

Payment plans allow you to extend your tuition payments over a period of time, rather than pay all at once. Stafford Loans are available to U.S. students as well, and may be subsidized or unsubsidized. For more information, click here.


Other Funding Opportunities

There are a wide array of options that might suit your circumstances, including employer assistance and private, third-party scholarships. You may also choose to apply for project-based funding and enter competitions with monetary awards. International students with valid F-1 visas may be eligible for paid internships through Curricular Practical Training and Optional Practical Training.
