Dean’s Scholarship – The Dean’s Scholarship is one of Stern’s most prestigious scholarships and is awarded to a limited number of some of our most meritorious admitted students. This full tuition scholarship is presented in the name of Dean Peter Blair Henry and affords the opportunity to connect directly with Dean Henry.
Named Faculty Scholarship – The Named Faculty Scholarship is designed to pair some of our most meritorious students with some of Stern’s most distinguished and prestigious faculty. This full tuition scholarship matches admitted students based on their background and interests with a designated faculty member in that field. Named faculty scholars have the opportunity to develop close ties to their designated faculty members through informal interactions. This past year, 12 faculty members were selected with the honor of participation: Bruce Buchanan, Aswath Damodaran, Rob Engle, Scott Galloway, Alvin Lieberman, Sonia Marciano, Elizabeth Morrison, Glenn Okun, Priya Raghubir, Michael Spence, Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh, and Batia Wiesenfeld.
Consortium Fellowship (a full tuition fellowship awarded in conjunction with a partner organization) – The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management seeks to enhance the representation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans in business education and management. U.S. citizens and permanent residents from these underrepresented groups, as well as other people who can demonstrate a commitment to the Consortium’s mission, are eligible. Applicants must apply to NYU Stern through the Consortium application to be considered for this full tuition fellowship.
